Detailed monitoring over the October-March period in winters and included event-based sampling of surface runoff, suspended and particulate sediment, and dissolved and particulate phosphorus from hillslope segments (each similar to m(2)) established in a randomized block design with four replicates of each treatment. Abstract Ponderosa pine forests are a dominant land cover type in semiarid montane areas. Water supplies in major rivers of the southwestern United States depend on ponderosa pine forests since these ecosystems: (1) receive a significant amount of rainfall and snowfall, (2) intercept precipitation and transpire water, and (3) indirectly influence runoff by impacting the infiltration : Taufique Hasan Mahmood.

Soil erosion is a natural geomorphic process that can be accelerated by improper land use and management practices. Problems caused by soil erosion and sediment yield include the loss of soil productivity, the degradation of water quality and a reduced capacity to prevent natural disasters such as floods (Aksoy & Kavvas, ; Muta et al., ; Ahmadi et al., ).Cited by: 8.

Although many hillslope hydrologic investigations have been conducted in different climate, topographic, and geologic settings, subsurface stormflow remains a poorly characterized runoff process. Few, if any, of the existing data sets from these hillslope investigations are available for use by the scientific community for model development and validation or conceptualization of subsurface.

Brown (), in a two-dimensional model, incorporated both infiltration partitioning and overland flow into the hillslope flow model. Model simulations using available field data were compared to field observations of rainfall-pore pressure responses and were found to be in reasonable : Jason C.

Fisher. The total sub-surface flow at saturation, slope gradient and hillslope plan form are used to generate flow differences down the length of the hillslope profile.

Simulations show the generation of saturated overland flow at downslope sites where flow converges, superimposed on a hydrograph which is largely controlled by the convex (in profile Cited by: GIS-Based Predictive Models of Hillslope Runoff Generation Pro-cesses.

Johnsona,1, William F. Coonb, Vishal K. Mehtaa, Tammo S. Steenhuisa,*, Erin S. Brooksc, Jan Bollc. The spatial correlation between the two indices for the entire hillslope is very high (r2 ‹).

The high correlation reflects the occurrence of the surface topographic low with the deepest soil depths, which produces similar trench face index patterns (Figure 1). Panola Three rainstorms in the hydrologically active season were studied. land use conditions on hillslopes (Lane and Nearing, ).

The WEPP technology consists of three computer models: a hillslope proftle version; a watershed version, and a grid version. The profile version computes soil detachment and deposition on a hillslope profile and provides the basis for the other two versions.

The proftie. Hillslopes provide critical watershed ecosystem services such as soil erosion control and storm flow regulation through collecting, storing, and releasing rain water. During intense rainstorms, rainfall intensity and infiltration capacity on the hillslope control Hortonian runoff while the topographic attributes of the hillslope (e.g., slope, aspect, curvature) and the channel network define Cited by: 9.

Topographic features generate surface runoff and lateral flows in the vadose zone. It can be argued upscaled soil hydraulic parameters at hillslope scales using real-world field data from two.

Rodhe4 Received 23 February ; accepted 23 March ; published 18 May [1] Topography is an important control on hydrological processes. One approach to quantify this control is the topographic ln(a/tanb) index.

By using the momentum theorem and water-balance principle, basic equations of slope runoff were derived, soil erosion by raindrop splash and runoff were discussed and a model was established for decribing hillslope soil erosion processes.

The numerical solution of the model was obtained by adopting the Preissmann format and considering the common solution-determining Cited by: 2. the upper soil layer is a key variable influencing runoff gen-eration, which is primarily a saturation–excess process in the study region (Walter et al., ; Easton et al., ).

Comparison of Peak Discharge and Runoff Characteristic Estimates from the Rational Method to Field. 4. Results [9] We illustrate differences in the behavior of the SPI and SRI using areal averages of observed precipitation and simulated runoff in the Feather River basin.

Figure 2 shows monthly time series of the indices for four accumulation periods (1‐, 3‐, 6‐ and 12‐month) for the years – The 12‐month SPI and SRI are very similar due to the high correlation between Cited by: hensive urban-runoff study. Rainfall-runoff models were calibrated for five of them and runoff-quality models were calibrated for four of them.

(See table 1 and figure 1.) There was insufficient data to model the sixth basin. Because the models were not intended to be applied to rural basins, the rural basin was not modeled in this by: 5.

An aspect that hinders the estimate of appropriate topographic factor (LS) values for applications in GIS and results in high limitation in the use of the USLE and RUSLE erosion models [6, 7] are the dynamics of the erosive process in complex reliefs and hydrographic basins, since USLE was primarily developed for the prediction of the erosion Cited by:   In this paper, we compare saturated runoff-contributing areas predicted with the VSA interpretation of the SCS-CN method with field-measured VSAs in a ha hillslope in central New York State.

We installed a trench below a VSA and simultaneously recorded water flux from different soil layers at the trench face and water table dynamics upslope.

The first is the one based on the topographic index (TWI in our paper) by Beven and Kirby (), but also by O'Loughlin (), and used both in rainfall-runoff models (i.e. TOPMODEL) and hillslope stability analysis (i.e SHALSTAB, and and SINMAP, ).

A40mð 20 m mowed, grass hillslope adjacent to a headwater stream within a ha watershed in east-central Pennsylvania, USA, was instrumented to identify and map the extent and dynamics of surface saturation (areas with the water table at the surface) and surface runoff source areas.

The runoff factors we examined include 4 factors: h, q max (peak flow discharge normalised for drainage areas, m 3 s-1 km-2), hq max (the product of h and q max) and h+q max (the sum of h and q max).

The use of h+q max follows [23, 30].The rainfall factors we examined include 12 factors: P (mm), T (rainfall duration, min), I (mean rainfall Cited by: 9. of runoff and soil erosion are to be understood at the field and catchment scale also. In recent years, it has been recognised that linking these scales of runoff and erosion may provide an approach by which accurate predictions may be made at all scales from the small hillslope to the large catchment (Wainwright et al., ).

Digital topographic and soil information was used to estimate potential runoff-contributing areas throughout Kansas.

The results then were used to compare 91 selected subbasins representing soil, slope, and runoff variability. Potential runoff-contributing areas were estimated collectively for the processes of infiltration-excess and saturation-excess overland flow using a set of environmental.

The processes that generate runoff are reviewed and illustrated by numerical models of watershed hydrology. The spatial distribution of precipitation, spatial variability in infiltration capacity, antecedent soil moisture, and topography are important determinants of runoff at the watershed scale.

Hillslope runoff can be divided into Hortonian surface runoff—which could hardly be observed in the monitored forested slopes—and into subsurface flow. The latter consists of near-surface flow ( cm), intermediate flow or interflow ( cm) and of base flow near the bedrock zone.
