kwb.hantush (v0.3.0): An R Package for Calculating Groundwater Mounding Beneath an Infiltration Basin Based on the Hantush Equation

Rustler, Michael

Recommended Literature

The USGS report ‘Simulation of Groundwater Mounding Beneath Hypothetical Stormwater Infiltration Basins’ by Carleton (2010) provides more background information on the Hantush calculation and also compares it to alternative approaches. In order to validate the calculation accuracy of the R package kwb.hantush it is benchmarked against these solutions here.
