Response of sloping unconfined aquifer to stage changes in adjacent stream: I. Theoretical analysis and derivation of system response functions, J. Hydrol] and develop solutions for the interaction of a fully penetrating stream with a sloping unconfined aquifer, taking also into account a low-conductivity streambed layer. These solutions give the aquifer stage and flow rate, the flow exchange rate at the stream–aquifer interface and the exchanged water volumes (bank storage/release). The solutions are analytical, when the flow-inducing stream stage variations are common functions; otherwise, the convolution integral is evaluated numerically. Responses are compared for aquifers on positive, negative and zero base slopes to a wave-like change in the stage of the stream. Analytical and numerical convolution-derived solutions are used to model the interaction of Cedar River and its adjacent unconfined aquifer near Cedar Rapids, Iowa. In the model, the aquifer base is taken to be horizontal or inclined and the streambed clogged by a low-conductivity sediment layer; the model is verified against data not used in the calibration and is found to perform very well.||URI:||http://ktisis.cut.ac.cy/handle/10488/8739||ISSN:||0022-1694||DOI:||http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.jhydrol.2007.02.030||Rights:||Copyright © Elsevier B.V.||Type:||Article|
