Unsaturated-Zone Modeling: Progress, Challenges, and Applications is the product of a 2004 symposium, sponsored by UNESCO and the International Association of Scientific Hydrology (IAHS), on the topic of unsaturated zone modeling held at Wageningen University in The Netherlands. The objective of the book is to discuss the history and assumptions used in unsaturated zone models and to define future research directions. The book presents 11 papers. Eight papers address four research themes, including (i) concepts and dimensionality in unsaturated modeling of water flow and solute transport, (ii) parameterizing the soil–water–atmosphere transfer through vegetation, (iii) unsaturated–saturated water flow and solute...
