Unconfined aquifer

The Table below shows the parameters (fields) of struct UnconfinedAquifer, including a description of these parameters, the unit, and default value if applicable. The parameters in bold represent model parameters that can be set through static input data (netCDF), and can be listed in the TOML configuration file under [lateral.subsurface], to map the internal model parameter to the external netCDF variable. For some input parameters the parameter listed under [lateral.subsurface] is not equal to the internal model parameter, these are listed in the Table below between parentheses after the internal model parameter. The top parameter is provided by the exteral parameter altitude as part of the static input data and set as follows through the TOML file:

# these are not directly part of the model
altitude = "wflow_dem"
