Many of the principles guiding stochastic analysis of flow and transport processes in the vadose zone are those which we also employ in the saturated zone, and which we have explored in earlier chapters. However, there are important considerations and simplifications to be made, given the nature of the flow and of the governing equations, which we explore here and in chapter 12. The governing equation for water flow in variably saturated porous media at the smallest scale where Darcy’s law is applicable (i.e., no need for upscaling of parameters) is Richards’ equation (cf. Yeh, 1998)
