    Description

    Hydrology is the driving force of sediment, nutrient, and pesticide movement. Separation of streamflow hydrographs into rapid surface runoff and baseflow can vastly improve our understanding of chemical transport. In addition, characterizing these two components of streamflow can also greatly improve overall watershed hydrologic budgets which are critical for accurate evapotranspiration estimation. For validation of hydrology in model simulations, direct runoff and baseflow components of the streamflow hydrographs typically need to be separated. Incorrect representation of baseflow patterns can lead to erroneous results in watershed analysis.
