Solutions of the linearized Richards equation with arbitrary boundary and initial conditions: flux and soil moisture respectively
Analytical solutions of differential equations describe physical problems and proved general insight of the studied natural mechanisms. Although they may be not suitable to solve complex hydrological problems, they are fast and useful to test numerical procedures. The solutions proposed in this work are obtained for arbitrary flux boundary conditions and arbitrary soil moisture initial conditions. This permits to use standard meteorological data: precipitation data (incoming flux) and Bowen ratio data (outgoing flux), which are very common, while soil volumetric water content measurements are ...
