Dear Dr. Simunek,

Can we do the same curve fitting in HYDRUS - 1D as it is done in RETC?

Thanks

In general yes, but I do not think that it is a good idea. You would still need to set up some flow conditions and then ignore them while fitting only the retention data. J.

Dear Dr. Simunek,

Thanks for the info. I will stick with RETC in this case.
