Description: The physical structure and hydrological processes of upland watersheds interact in response to forcing functions such as rainfall, leading to storm runoff generation and pore pressure evolution. Transient fluid flow through distinct flow paths such as the soil matrix, macropores, saprolite, and bedrock may be viewed as a consequence of such interactions. Field observations of pore pressure responses to rain events at two diverse experimental watersheds further reflect the importance of heterogeneous soil and geologic materials as they affect storm runoff responses. An existing physically-based numerical subsurface flow model was modified to incorporate infiltration partitioning and overland flow.
