Estimating Infiltration Rate


Nov 30, 2020
Infiltration rate is an important parameter to consider when designing artificial structures for aquifer recharge. If there is a canal-like recharge structure filled with water 24/7;

  • how can I estimate the water infiltration rate at this site without collecting field data?
  • are there any specific methods/databases available for this?
  • if field data is a must requirement, what should be the bare minimum of data to be collected?
