Short summary
The estimation of flow and solute transport in unsaturated soil is essential for quantifying groundwater resources or pollution. Usual column laboratory experiments and a new method are analyzed using a global sensitivity analysis. The data sets are composed of water pressure and water content measured inside the column and water flow rate and solute BTC measured at the outflow. Non-invasive methods (using flow rate and BTC only) provide comparable results than usual invasive methods.
