Towards a new, improved R-SWMS model

Natalie Schroeder, a former PhD student at UCl and FZJ, is currently working at the Dept. of Hydromechanics and Modelling of Hydrosystems of the Stuttgard University to implement root functions into the Dumux platform.

Future simulations will rely on more accurate soil water and solute numerical resolutions and additional features like parallel processing and adpative grid are expected to be available. A first version is already available and currently running. Other features are coming soon!
