Recharge to the groundwater calculated according to Berendrecht et al. (2006).

Notes

Note that the preferred unit of the precipitation and evaporation is mm/d. The water balance for the unsaturated zone reservoir is written as:

$\frac{dS_e}{dt} = \frac{1}{D_e}(f_iP - E_a - R)$

where the recharge is calculated as:

$R(S_e) = K_sS_e^\lambda(1-(1-S_e^{1/m})^m)^2$

For a detailed description of the recharge model and parameters we refer to the original publication.

## Methods#
