    Abstract

    A simple one-dimensional stochastic model was developed for quantifying groundwater dynamics and model accuracy. Due to its soil physical backbone, the model is somewhere between pure empirical models on the one hand, and complex physical-mechanistic models on the other. Hence, it is envisaged that it is more effective in scenario studies than pure empirical models, and more easily to operate than complex physical-mechanistic models. A case study showed that the model was capable of predicting various groundwater characteristics.
