Western Davenport WCD Groundwater Model (v2.0) Parameter Estimation CloudGMS 79 6.4.2. Infi ltration distribution The optimised daily infiltration rate distribution is presented in Figure 6-1. The estimated infiltration fraction distribution is consistent with the conceptualisation and highlights the importance of infiltration along the edges of the basin in the vicinity of Taylors Creek and the southern boundary.
