40 cross-sectional (vertical) plan as enumerated in the main text Sections 3.8 and 3.9. In this case, the flow domain has a finite thickness, as the aquifer is confined by impermeable layers at the top and bottom. Figure Q3.8 The flowrate q is calculated from q ( m 3 /s per metre thickness) = k.H.N F /N H where k, the permeability of the soil = 3.6
