Surface runoff control measures are used to minimize the infiltration and percolation of overland flow or precipitation at a waste site. It is the infiltration of these waters that serve as the moving or driving force that leaches contaminants from the surface or unsaturated zone to the water table.

Book Description: Among all the phases of the hydrological cycle, overland flow and surface runoff have the most intimate interaction with human beings as they co-exist in space and time. This book contains eleven chapters covering a wide range of topics on overland flow and surface runoff, which are of value of researchers and practicing.

Surface runoff, or overland flow, is a fundamental process of interest in hydrology. Surface runoff generation can occur at multiple scales, ranging from small pools of excess water that Overland flow and surface runoff book downhill to stream networks that drain large catchments.

Surface runoff can also be diverted by humans for their own uses. The small creek shown in the picture above will merge with another creek, eventually flowing into a larger river.

Thus, this creek is a tributary to a river somewhere downstream, and the. Tommy S. Wong is the founding editor of the Hydrological Science and Engineering book series.

Overland flow is a very important aspect of the water cycle and can be generated under two different physical mechanisms. overland flow on impervious surface overland flow on pervious surface application of kinematic wave to natural watershed --references --overland flow and the runon process --abstract introduction overland flow generation saturation overland flow hortonian overland flow 3.

resistance relationships H.N. Lee, in Encyclopedia of Ecology, Runoff Processes. Runoff is usually considered as a streamflow that involves surface runoff and groundwater flow that Overland flow and surface runoff book the streams.

Surface runoff is a function of intensity, duration, and distribution of rain precipitation; permeability of ground surface; surface coverage (i.e., arid or semiarid); geometry of stream channel; depth of water.

The generation of surface runoff and the hydraulics of overland flow are, like many hydrologic and geomorphic phenomena, characterized by high levels of spatial and temporal variability. Marked variation in hillslope runoff over short distances has been observed by many workers, including Emmett (), Roels (), Abrahams et al.

() and Cited by: Surface Runoff. If the amount of water falling on the ground is greater than the infiltration rate of the surface, runoff or overland flow will occur. Runoff specifically refers to the water leaving an area of drainage and flowing across the land surface to points of lower elevation.

N2 - This chapter presents an overview of surface-runoff generation and overland flow. The basic mechanisms that generate infiltration-excess and saturation-excess overland flow are reviewed. In addition, the principal factors affecting the occurrence of each process on the landscape are examined, including climate, soil properties, vegetation Cited by: 4.

Nearly all surface runoff starts as overland flow in the upper reaches of a watershed and travels at least a short distance in this manner before it reacl Cited by: Surface runoff or overland flow: – When the intensity of rainfall is higher than the infiltration rate, then after infiltration the excess water will flow over the land surface to the channel and is called surface runoff.

The quantity of water moving towards the stream is called overland flow. Lecture Runoff. Key Questions.

What is Hortonian overland flow. What is saturation from below and interflow. What is subsurface flow. How do the different runoff mechanisms affect the shape of the hydrograph.

What is the effective rainfall depth and why does if vary with season. Size: 2MB. Table 8 - Values of overland flow roughness coefficient Notes: a Engman (), b Downer (b), c Senarath et al (), d HEC () These values should be considered guidelines.

Manning roughness coefficients are typically assigned from literature values and then adjusted through calibration. Ward and Robinson () define surface runoff as "That part of total runoff that reaches the catchment outlet via overland and channel flow".

What is described here is their definition of overland flow: "Water that, failing to infiltrate the surface, travels over the ground surface towards a stream channel either as quasi-laminar flow or.

Determination of overland sheet flow depths, velocities and celerities across the hillslope in watershed modeling is important towards estimation of surface storage, travel times to streams and soil detachment rates.

It requires careful characterization of the flow processes. Similarly, determination of the temporal variation of hillslope-riparian-stream hydrologic connectivity requires Cited by: 6. While it is possible to measure average overland flow rates in the field rainfall and runoff simulations (e.g.,), determinations of average flow depths are generally not possible due to the variable surface conditions and small depths; hence the need for the aluminum sandbox to determine if the field shallow flow depths were consistent with Cited by: 6.

The following instructions can be applied to the surface flow domain, as discussed in Sectionto modify the default transport each instruction we will indicate its scope (.oprops).Recall that if an instruction is used in the file, it will affect the current set of chosen zones, while in a properties () file, it will only affect the.

The correction factors used to determine the actual mean velocity of overland flow varied directly with Reynolds and Froude numbers, flow velocity and slope and inversely with flow depth and bed.

Overland flow or surface run off on a saturated hill side. Overland Sheet Flow -Overland sheet flow is shallow flow over a plane surface. It occurs in the furthest upstream segment of the drainage path, which is located immediately downstream from the drainage divide.

The length of the overland sheet flow segment is the. Thereafter, surface puddles, ditches, and other depressions are filled with water (depression storage), and after that overland flow as runoff is generated.

The process of runoff generation continues as long as the rainfall intensity exceeds the actual infiltration capacity of the soil but it stops as soon as the rate of rainfall drops below. In field studies of interrill overland flow conducted on runoff plots, the mean depth of flow is usually obtained by averaging measurements of flow depth at regularly spaced points across the plot, including points where there is no by: Overland flow is surface runoff that occurs in the form of sheet flow on the land surface without concentrating in clearly defined channels.

This type of flow is the first manifestation of surface runoff, since the latter occurs first as overland flow before it has.

Overland Flow. Research on overland flow has started in Canada as my part of Dr. Julien's own M.S. thesis and Ph.D. dissertation More recent research on overland flow has been funded by ARO and ARL since Surface Runoff Modeling.

Noun. surface runoff (countable and uncountable, plural surface runoffs) Overland flow of excess water (with or without accumulated contaminants) that cannot be absorbed by the ground as infiltration.

When there is very heavy rainfall on California hillsides over a prolonged period, there is almost always ensuing surface. Surface Runoff; Current the system would resemble an open book, with the water running parallel to the text on the page (down the shaded planes) and then into the channel that follows the book's center binding.

The kinematic wave overland flow model represents behavior of overland flow on the plane surfaces. The model may also be used to. Runoff plots (total n = 9, 3 for each treatment or CK) were established inand surface water flow, sediment, nitrogen (N) and phosphorus (P) losses were monitored from major rainfall events.

Estimation of Runoff. Excess Rainfall. Overland flow. RUNOFF Runoff: After the detention storage is built up, the water will start flowing over the ground and is called runoff.

The component of surface runoff, which flows over the land surface, is generally know as overland flow and in conjunction with other components constitutes the streamflow phase of a hydrologic cycle. In hydrologic engineering studies, one of the frequently encountered problems is to estimate the time of concentration from readily obtainable by: 1.Discover the best Surface Runoff books and audiobooks.
