Water age and flow pathways should be related; however, it is still generally unclear how integrated catchment runoff generation mechanisms result in streamflow age distributions at the outlet. Lapides et al. (2021) combined field observations of runoff generation at the Dry Creek catchment with StorAge Selection (SAS) age models to explore the relationship between streamwater age and runoff pathways. Dry Creek is an intensively monitored catchment in the northern California Coast Ranges with a Mediterranean climate and thin subsurface critical zone. Due to limited storage capacity, runoff response is rapid (~1-2 hours), and total annual streamflow consists predominantly of saturation overland flow, based on field mapping of saturated extents and runoff thresholds. Even though SAS modeling reveals that streamflow is younger at higher wetness states, flow is still typically older than one day. Because streamflow is mostly overland flow, this means that a significant portion of overland flow must not be event-rain but instead derive from older groundwater returning to the surface, consistent with field observations of exfiltrating head gradients, return flow through macropores, and extensive saturation days after storm events. We conclude that even in a landscape with widespread overland flow, runoff pathways may be longer than anticipated, with implications for contaminant delivery and biogeochemical reactions. Our findings have implications for the assumptions built into classic hydrograph separation inferences, namely, whether overland flow consists of new water.
For this work, we translated SAS modeling code in Matlab from Benettin and Bertuzzo (2018) to Python and provide here a set of code for SAS modeling in Python and example data for Dry Creek, CA produced for the SAS modeling publication by Lapides et al. (2021).
Summary of results
summary_data_streamflow_info.csv: Table of summary data for streamflow at Dry Creek, CA. These data include: streamflow, overland flow, areal fraction of landscape saturated, direct precipitation on saturated area (DPSA, rainfall intensity multipled by areal fraction of landscape saturated), fraction of streamflow from overland flow, and pressure head at piezometer MNP3.
summary_data_ages.csv: Table of summary results from StorAge Selection (SAS) modeling of streamflow ages at Dry Creek, CA. These data include: median age of water in storage, median age of water in streamflow, mean fraction of streamflow younger than 1 day, and mean fraction of streamflow from the youngest 10th percentile of storage. For each data type, the reported mean/25th percentile/75th percentile is calculated amongth the top 95th percentile of paramter sets for the SAS model.
Isotopic analysis at Dry Creek, CA
Lapides et al. (2021) collected precipitation and streamflow isotopes at the Dry Creek catchment in Northern California. Here, we provide raw data for measured isotope values and hydrologic monitoring information including streamflow, evapotranspiration, precipitation, and piezometer measurements. These data can be found at:
Google Colab notebook for rainfall isotope analysis and data visualization
Google Colab notebook for modeling saturation extent with a logistic regression
Hydrograph and runoff analysis
We calculated runoff coefficients and performed lag to peak analysis for a set of well-defined runoff events at Dry Creek to support understanding of runoff generation. The code used for this analysis can be found at:
