Catchments as simple dynamical systems : Experience from a Swiss prealpine catchment

  title={Catchments as simple dynamical systems : Experience from a Swiss prealpine catchment},
  author={Adriaan J. Teuling and Ines Lehner and James W Kirchner and Sonia I Seneviratne},
[1] Heterogeneity in small‐scale subsurface flow processes does not necessarily lead to complex system behavior at larger scales. Here we use the simple dynamical systems approach recently proposed by Kirchner (WRR, 2009) to analyze, characterize, and simulate streamflow dynamics in the Swiss Rietholzbach catchment. The Rietholzbach data set used here provides 32 years of continuous and high‐quality observations, which include a soil moisture profile and unique observations of storage changes… CONTINUE READING
