Streamflow reflects the complex interactions between the weather and the biophysical environment as water flows through the hydrologic cycle. It represents the balance of water that remains after all losses back to the atmosphere and storage opportunities within a watershed have been satisfied. This chapter describes the hydrologic processes that affect the generation of streamflow in British Columbia’s watersheds. These processes include precipitation, interception, evaporation, infiltration… CONTINUE READING
