There are different linearization methods used to process cumulative infiltration data, each with its own advantages and peculiarities (Vandervaere et al., 2000a). The methods we consider here are the cumulative infiltration (CI, e.g. Zhang, 1997), cumulative linearization (CL, Smiles and Knight, 1976) and differential linearization (DL, Vandervaere et al., 1997).
