Twarakavietal. (2008) compared four packages that can be used to estimate recharge for regional-scale groundwater flow simulations using MODFLOW (Harbaugh, 2005). This comment is focused on the comparisons made between two of these packages, namely, UZF1 (Niswonger et al., 2006) and a derivative of HYDRUS referred to herein as HYDRUS (Seo et al., 2007). In their paper, Twarakavi et al. (2008) stated that HYDRUS more accurately simulates unsaturated flow processes and groundwater recharge as compared to UZF1. However, Twarakavi et al. (2008) did not address several important differences between these...
