radial flow

   1. Radial flow into or out of a well under ideal circular boundary conditions [16].
   2. The flow of ground water in all directions in response to recharge entering the subsurface at or near the top of a ground-water plateau. This conditions occurs most often through point recharge entering the subsurface via sinkholes in karst terranes.
