    Abstract - A one-dimensional, finite difference model of saturated subsurface flow within a hillslope was developed. The model uses rainfall, elevation data, a hydraulic conductivity, and a storage coefficient to predict the saturated thickness in time and space. The model was tested against piezometric data collected in a swale located in the headwaters of the North Fork Caspar Creek Experimental Watershed near Fort Bragg, California. The model was limited in its ability to reproduce historical piezometric responses.
