Abstract:
A deficiency in current understanding of flood response is the variation of flood generation at different spatial scales as a function of spatial and temporal variations in storm rainfall. There is a lack of studies showing the process of transformation from rainfall to stream flow at a range of consecutive scales. This process is complex and varies with catchment size. The aim of the project is therefore to investigate the relationship between rainfall spatial variability anc lood response through a multiscale nested experiment.
