length to aquifer depth. 
2a /L_{R} 
0.02 
Ratio of lake
length to regional length of aquifer. 
L_{L
}/L_{R} 
0.5

lake within the regional setting, normalised by
the regional length. 
Aquifer Properties 
K_{H }/K_{V} 
1

yield. 
Boundary Fluxes 
R_{Ls}
/R_{s} 
15 
Ratio of average
lake recharge to average aquifer recharge. 
R_{La}S_{y}
/R_{a} 
0.5 
Ratio
relating theamplitude of fluctuation in lake
recharge to the amplitude of aquifer recharge. 
q /P 

The
phase difference between the lake and aquifer
recharges, normalised by the period. 
System Response 
L_{R}^{2}S_{y}
/K_{H}BP 
0.469 
Nondimensional
response time describing the ability of the
lakeaquifer system to propagate periodic forcing
applied at the boundaries. 
R_{s}L_{R}^{2}
/K_{H}B^{2}

/S_{y}B 
0.4 
Ratio
describing the size of potential fluctuation in
advective flowpaths relative to the aquifer
depth.
