Groundwater level formula (Water Overlay)
Groundwater level is calculated per cell.
- WH_{underground} = W_{sat} / WSP
- WL_{underground} = WH_{underground} + H_{surface} - GBDM
Where:
- WL_{underground} = The groundwater level, relative to datum. Also known as the watertable.
- WH_{underground} = The height (column) of the saturated zone.
- W_{sat} = The amount of water in the saturated zone. The height of the water column if the equivalent amount of water was placed on the surface.
- H_{surface} = The surface height in the cell, relative to datum.
- GBDM = The GROUND_BOTTOM_DISTANCE_M (effectively available height in the underground model).
- WSP = The WATER_STORAGE_PERCENTAGE of the underground terrain type.
