Functional model of water balance variability at the catchment scale : 2 . Elasticity of fast and slow runoff components to precipitation change in the continental United States

[1] Assessing the sensitivity of annual streamflow to precipitation is challenging due to the complexity of the processes that control the water balance. A low-dimensional model can be useful to interrogate data in regional assessments of a large number of catchments, and can provide insights into the broad similarities and differences between catchments… CONTINUE READING
