I personally would trust the website more than the configuration file,
but I would have to check the code to know for sure. The values given
in the first tutorial file should not be considered "defaults" but
rather "what random number can I stick in this file to make the model

Subject: [Dhsvm-users] Lateral conductivy units
The DHSVM web site states the units used for vertical and lateral
hydraulic conductivity are m/s. Given the default values shown for
soils in the configfile, this seems incorrect. Can anyone clarify these
Here is one example, in the configfile the default lateral and vertical
hydraulic conductivities for a silty clay loam is shown as 0.01 (m/s?).
A published value for this soil type is 0.23 inches/hr or 0.16*10^-6
m/s. Given this example it seems the units may be more like m/3 hours.
