Abstract

We summarize observations made by various researchers regarding the discharge potential, vertically integrated flows, and the Dupuit-Forchheimer approximation. If a regional flow model is formulated in terms of the discharge potential and the boundary conditions can be written in terms of the discharge potential and the boundary discharges, then the discharges are correct throughout the model domain, without embracing any additional simplifying assumptions.
