This method is time consuming and expensive [3], as well as highly dependent upon the groundwater gradient and hydraulic conductivity [8].
We further suggest this quantity be given the lower case Greek symbol, K, to emphasise its connection with the hydraulic conductivity and to acknowledge the original (and apparently independent) contributions of both Kirchhoff (1894) and Klute (1952), thus the matric flux transform, k(/i), is defined as:
For using of hydraulic conductivity estimated models, it was needed to soil physical data.
The physical measurements, such as water temperature and hydraulic conductivity, affect the chemical nature of the stream and thus the biology.
The obtained water evaporation data show that experiments in the laboratory are not affected by the hydraulic conductivity values, i.
Further studies are needed to estimate the hydraulic conductivity of peat at different humification levels in order to model potential impact of groundwater lowering on water levels on the bog surface.
In the southern area where karstic limestone outcropped, the high DRASTIC index probably represented the effects of aquifer media and hydraulic conductivity.
The percent increase in the saturated hydraulic conductivity was of the order of 17, 78, and 24% in the Awagat soil and 15, 69, and 25% in the Shahpur soil with the BNM, INM, and BNM+GM treatments, respectively, over FFU (Table 5).

In addition to fitting hydraulic heads, calibration was based on the following criteria: computed water levels should always stand below the topographic surface; estimated hydraulic conductivity should be consistent with conductivity derived from available hydrogeological data; spatial patterns of parameters should be consistent with available geological information.
Hydraulic conductivity is the measure of the ease of which a liquid flows through a porous membrane.
