Runoff Processes: International Edition

Runoff Processes: International Edition
  • Explain and define basic runoff processes such as runoff, baseflow, interflow, percolation, infiltration and infiltration capacity
  • Understand the paths that water may take in becoming runoff, and the surface and subsurface soil properties that influence these paths
  • Explain how basin shape, size, slope, land usage and other qualities influence runoff
  • Describe how various soil qualities such as texture and depth influence runoff
  • Understand the basic concepts of runoff modeling, including how lumped, semi-distributed and distributed models work
