Characterized streamflow hydrograph, and discussed methods of separating groundwater base flow component of streamflow hydrograph to get direct runoff component attributable to particular storm event (straight-line, and variable slope). If we take a systems approach to rainfall discharge relationship in a watershed: Excess rainfall - rainfall not retained as storage on land surface or infiltrated into the soil, i.e., rainfall which becomes direct runoff Graph of excess rainfall vs. time is called excess rainfall hyetograph. Most excess rainfall-discharge relationships use a systems approach to develop a deterministic lumped unsteady model of the rainfall-discharge relationship.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
