CLEX researchers and colleagues find soil moisture variations need to be considered over at least a decade before a steady-state assumption can be made.

Research brief: Higher streamflow variability than rainfall creates challenges for hydrologic variability framework.March 9, 2020 2:35 pm Comments Off on Research brief: Higher streamflow variability than rainfall creates challenges for hydrologic variability framework.
New research shows, contrary to expectation, the inter-annual variance in evapotranspiration is much smaller than for precipitation, runoff and soil storage. Accounting for hydrologic covariances explains why it is possible for variability in the principal sink (e.g., streamflow) to exceed variability in the source (precipitation).
