Rock Mechanics and Rock Engineering.
Implications of improved understanding of variably saturated flow are numerous, especially given the complexity, heterogeneity, and anisotropy of the intermediate fractured vadose zone. One such an implication is the quantification of water movement for engineering purposes, as flow-through unsaturated discontinuities cannot be quantified through commonly applied saturated approaches.
