Different Approaches towards an Understanding of Runoff Generation
The Study is a contribution to the recent research on runoff generation. It combines a continuous runoff seperation model with natural tracers to investigate the process of runoff generation. The trachers used are oxygen-18 and hydrochemical tracers to detect the runoff components and correspondig residence times and storage volumes. The study was carried out in two neighbouring research basins which are different in their hydrological behaviour due to human impact. The results of the investigations emphasize that graphical and isotope methods have very different boundary conditions. While the former explains how far water flows into streams, the latter explains how long water is stored within a basin. The combination of both models and experimental methods leads to better understanding of hydrological systems.
