SWAP Version 3.2. Theory description and user manual

Research output: Book/ReportReportProfessional


SWAP 3.2 simulates transport of water, solutes and heat in the vadose zone. It describes a domain from the top of canopy into the groundwater which may be in interaction with a surface water system. The program has been developed by Alterra and Wageningen University, and is designed to simulate transport processes at field scale and during whole growing seasons. This is a new release with special emphasis on numerical stability, macro pore flow, and options for detailed meteorological input and linkage to other models. This manual describes the theoretical background, model use, input requirements and output tables.
