Hydraulic conductivity prescribed to the layer of the Malm Gamma–Zeta based on the degree of dolomitization and karstification based on the work of Birner (2013) and implemented into the 3D numerical model. Birner (2013) states that these four Malm layers can be regarded as a continuous aquifer on a basin scale and thus described with lithological units of different but homogenous hydraulic characteristics. The purple colour shows the area of the uplifted crust of the Landshut-Neuöttinger High (LNH) above which the Malm aquifer is eroded
