|Table 2: Average fitted parameter and AIC values for the soil water retention models across hillslopes.|
a is measured saturation water content.|
b is residual water content.
c is the air entry matric suction (, and of the CA, BC, and RU models, resp.).
d is the capillary pressure at the inflection point on the water retention curve (, , and of the VG5, VG4, and TA models, resp.).
e is a dimensionless parameter (, and of the CA, BC, VG5, VG4, and RU models, resp.).
f is a dimensionless parameter ( of the VG5 model).
gA lower value of Akaike Information Criterion (AIC) indicates a better model fit.
