Assumed stratigraphy examples used in spatial groundwater balance model

SoilSoil depthKinematic porosity rangeSoil storage description, assumed stratigraphy examples
Clay >1 0.0005–0.002 1 m till, remaining soil column clay 
Clay <=1 0.0005–0.002 Entire soil column assumed as clay 
Peat All 0.2 Entire soil column assumed as peat 
Till All 0.025–0.1 Entire soil column assumed as till 
Glacial Sand All 0.1–0.3 Entire soil column assumed as sand 
Glacial Gravel All 0.15–0.45 Entire soil column assumed as xgravel 
Post-glacial sediments >5 0.1–0.45 1 m till, 1–2 m clay, remaining soil column according to surficial soil 
Post-glacial Sediments <=5 0.1–0.45 Soil column according to type of soil 
Outcrop 0.0001–0.0005 Only storage in bedrock
