### Porous media tool -- Max slope

Hello all,
Could anyone explain me please what is Max. slope of the porous media tool refering to? I´ve read that it indicates the maximum slope the tool should consider, but, isnt the slope calculated from the DTM? Could it be the slope of the cells? Sorry but I dont get it..

thank you frank, I had already read it, but I didnt undestand it right.. Is it the max slope to create the bottom file? So is it any way to check both topografy slope?

Anne,

the slope is computed appart from topography.

the cells with a slope higher than the maximum slope will have the maximum soil depth and the max depth will be applied to slope zero. Anithing between is a linear function of slope
or
- Max Depth = Soil Depth when slope is zero;
- Min Depth = Soil Depth when slope >= Max Slope;
