  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.

Introduction. 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.

Simulation of soil moisture on a hillslope using multiple hydrologic models in comparison to field measurements Article in Journal of Hydrology April with Reads How we measure 'reads'. 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.

In general, the vertical recharge rate R [m s−1] can be calculated from a simple continuity equation.

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).

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.

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.
