Hydrologic dynamics of a large Prairie watershed: Looking for runoff controls in an engineered, mixed use landscape
Despite intense and continued human modification of the Prairie landscape, the consequences of this hydrological management on the runoff regime remain poorly understood. Specifically, previous research carried out in Prairie watersheds has not explored threshold rainfall-runoff behaviour as has been done in pristine, higher relief hillslopes and catchments. To address this, we focus here on a large mixed-used Prairie watershed for high temporal resolution hydrometric and meteorologic monitoring.
