The application of a discharge-depth equation (with variable coefficient and exponent) is recommended for shallow flows of water over soil and through vegetation. The more flexible nature of this equation over the commonly used channel flow equations is considered, and typical values are given for three conditions, viz, bare uneven soil, artificial vegetation, and pasture and crop covers growing on a sandy soil.
