The research group led by Prof. Jirka Simunek is mainly focusing on the evaluation of water flow and solute transport in variably-saturated soils using numerical models, especially the HYDRUS software package. The focus of the stay was to learn more about unsaturated zone modeling as well as to modify the HYDRUS code so that it is more applicable to simulate the processes taking place during the laboratory tank experiments. A new option in HYDRUS 1D and 2D was implemented where it is possible to decrease hydraulic conductivity over time using an exponential function.
