Simulates one-dimensional water movement in soils. It accommodates finite or semi-infinite soil systems, and allows initial and boundary conditions to be specified. The user can also define a soil's hydraulic properties and simulate flow in other soils. Water content and hydraulic conductivity must be provided as functions of the matrix potential. Changes in boundary conditions and output format can be changed at any time during simulations.
