Runoff Generation and Implications for River Basin Modelling
Proceedings of the International Workshop 9-13 October 2000, Institute of Hydrology, University of Freiburg i.Br./Germany, convened by IAHS, ICT, ICSW, IHP/OHP-FRIEND ERB National Working Group
generation is considered as one of the most important processes in catchment
hydrology. The correct separation of the effective precipitation into
different runoff components is crucial for the modelling of transport
processes of solutes and contaminants. Stream water quality depends on
the varying contributions from surface runoff, soil water and groundwater.
In recent years tracer methods combined with hydrometric measurements
have proved to be effective for identifying runoff generation mechanisms
in headwater zones. Nevertheless, many processes are still not well understood
at larger basins scales.
