Kinematic wave modelling of vertical movement of snowmelt water through a snowpack

Singh, P.; Bengtsson, Lars LU and Westerstrom, G. (1997) In Hydrological Processes 11(2). p.149-167
Abstract
Vertical movement of snowmelt water through snowpacks is modelled by applying the kinematic wave theory. Analytical solutions are obtained for moisture flux, particle velocity, time history and velocity of meltwater front and total moisture content for a single melt event assuming that the melt rate is constant. These solutions are extended to the case involving more than one event.
