Tutorial 1 Initial Hydraulic Condition

To view and/or modify the model initial hydraulic condition, select "Initial Equilibrium Profile" from the "Active Data" selector.

Since "initial equilibrium profile" was selected for initial conditions on the flow panel under "Model Options", the water table is depicted by the top of the blue shaded region which corresponds to the saturated zone. The height of the red line above the water table corresponds to the magnitude of the minimum pressure head allowed for initial conditions. In the present example, the equilibrium profile extends from the water table all the way to land surface. To modify depth to water table or minimum pressure head, see initial equilibrium profile.
