Coupling of ground and surface water flows

Using integrated waterway linkage (surface water coupling) SPRING allows yield balancing of exchange volumes between surface and groundwater. The approach limits the see page volume for dry and non-perennial surface water stretches to the volume of water entering the stretch from upstream water courses or external discharges.

Surface-groundwater interaction via a leakage approach

SPRING determines the interaction between surface and groundwater using water levels and leakage coefficients.
Additional parameter like the ratio of in-/ex-filtration capacity, limitations on minimal or maximum exchange volumes as well as the detachment of surface water bodies can be optionally considered to allow a more detailed description of the interaction.
