Furrow infiltration and channel seepage are often measured
with inflow-outflow measurements. Inaccuracy in the flow measurement
will cause a larger uncertainty in the calculated infiltration. The infiltration
rate determination uncertainty increases rapidly as the percent of
the inflow that is infiltrated decreases. The effect of measurement
uncertainty on infiltration measurements can be estimated so that the
confidence interval of a mean or the actual infiltration variability level
can be determined.
