CABI Book Chapter Info
Cover for Hydrological processes of reference watersheds in experimental forests, USA.

This chapter provides an overview and comparison of factors influencing hydrological processes, especially stream flow dynamics and evapotranspiration, at ten relatively undisturbed reference watersheds in the USDA-EFR network. The chapter demonstrates the breadth of the hydrogeological,...

Cover for CRITERIA-3D: a mechanistic model for surface and subsurface hydrology for small catchments.

This chapter describes an application of a physically based, three-dimensional catchment scale model. The model is primarily intended to simulate complex hydrological patterns in contexts where simple one-dimensional or two-dimensional schemes are not suitable, and where phenomena related to...

Cover for Patterns and processes in the catchment.

The major processes driving the hydrological cycle, their effects on the fate of pollutants and thus on the evolution of ecosystems are summarized and the links between problems of ecohydrological interest, features of hydrological patterns and catchment processes are discussed. In addition, the...

Cover for Regional hydrologic impacts of climate change.

A climate change detection framework is presented and applied to five hydrologic variables calculated for a collection of forested catchments from three climatic regions in Canada. The trend detection framework includes the application of a non-parametric statistical test for trend and the use of...

Cover for Potential impacts of climate change on streamflow and flooding in snow-dominated forested basins.

Changes in climate resulting from increased atmospheric greenhouse gases may affect the frequency and magnitude of flooding in forested watersheds through changes in snowpack, soil moisture, and runoff production. The level of impact will vary among watersheds depending on climate regime and...
