On an exact analytical solution of the Boussinesq equation

A useful exact analytical solution of the Boussinesq equation is discussed and is the most general solution presently available, and in particular yields a solution for a finite aquifer. It provides insight into the physical processes arising during the exchange of water between an aquifer and a free body of water of varying height as an application and extension of Barenblatt’s solution. We also illustrate the value of such a solution to check numerical and approximate schemes.
