Ground Water Flow
The three dimensional ground water flow equation is given by
where q_{x} is the Darcy flux, h is the hydraulic head, K_{x} is the hydraulic conductivity in the x direction, and S_{s} is the storage coefficient for a confined aquifer. The Darcy flux is defined by
where q_{x} is the Darcy flux in the x direction and i is the hydraulic gradient.
