The Hydrological Functions of a Boreal Wetland

  title={The Hydrological Functions of a Boreal Wetland},
  author={Chris Spence and Xiu Juan Guan and Ross A. Phillips},
Wetlands are important to boreal catchment hydrology and water chemistry regimes because they are often situated at the outlet of headwater basins. There is understanding of runoff and geochemical processes that predominate in these wetlands. However, an investigation to improve understanding of the dynamic of hydrological function is absent. This paper addresses the nature of the collection, storage, transmitting and contributing functions of one typical wetland in Canada’s Precambrian Shield… CONTINUE READING
