Short summary
The dual node and common node approach are widely used to simulate coupled surface–subsurface flows. In this study it is shown that the dual node approach should be conceptualized as a one-sided finite difference approximation of the vertical head gradients at the land surface. This consistent dual node approach can be more accurate as well as as more numerically efficient than the common node approach.
