Request for guidance regarding Van Genuchten-Maulem model parameters for rocks

Post by Hydraus_1d_RD » Tue Dec 29, 2020 5:22 am

Dear all,
I’m presently trying to model a layered system with 80% soil material at the top and 20 % rock mass at the bottom. My objective is to understand the pattern of groundwater recharge due to induced atmospheric forcing at the top. While I already have Van Genuchten-Maulem model parameters for the soil layer, I’m just wondering if you have any suggestions for any databases or publications for the Van Genuchten-Maulem model parameters for rocks (both fractured and unfractured type rock masses). Would you please let me know?
Thank you!
Sincerely
A Hydrus-1D user
