Session Description:
Simulation of time-dependent streamflow variability in river watersheds is a critical problem of hydrology. The variability of streamflows reflects the response of the watershed to a number of individual hydrological processes, like the rainfall duration and intensity, losses of rainfall due to infiltration and evapotranspiration, run-on/run-off, soil characteristics, topographic properties and vegetation coverage, aquifer hydraulic conductivity, and the ability of groundwater storage, which they are difficult, if not impossible, to measure precisely. Moreover, limited database covered the large and rapid variations in streamflow and chemistry influences by rainfall storms. This session will introduce new insights into the variability of rainfall-runoff responses to climate change and present models for predicting future change in ecosystems, and increase our understanding of the other water-movement phenomena, flood production, the geomorphology of rivers, the fate and transport of different agrochemical pollutants through surface-groundwater interactions, and separate flow studies.
