Investigational methods for the modeling of infiltration process in the soil and the estimating the soil hydrodynamic parameters
Interdisciplinary Laboratory for Natural Resources and Environment Department of Physics, Faculty of Sciences, Ibn Tofail University, B.P 242, 14000 Kenitra, Morocco.
Unsaturated zone in the soil generally plays an important role in the transfer of water and pollutants in the underground environment. In this context, the determination of the hydrodynamic parameters constitutes an essential step for any study of transfers of water and solutes in the unsaturated zone. The purpose of this article is the estimation the soil hydrodynamic parameters by the direct method and the inverse method, from the infiltration data by using the disc infiltrometer in the soil the basin Loukkos located in northern Morocco. Our results the numerical modeling reproduced correctly the experimental measurements. These results show that the inverse method remains a robust and accurate method for determining the soil hydrodynamic parameters compared to other conventional methods.
