Estimation of baseflow residence times in watersheds from the runoff hydrograph recession : method and application in the Neversink watershed , Catskill Mountains , New York

A method for estimation of mean baseflow residence time in watersheds from hydrograph runoff recession characteristics was developed. Runoff recession characteristics were computed for the period 1993–96 in the 2 km2 Winnisook watershed, Catskill Mountains, southeastern New York, and were used to derive mean values of subsurface hydraulic conductivity and… (More)
