Experiments in small watershed response
There is need in hydrologic research for a facility in which some of the many variables in the natural hydrologic system can be controlled or varied at will. Size or scale is an important consideration. Some of the design features of the CSU Experimental Rainfall-Runoff Facility are discussed especially those which have been modified. Three classes of experiments are described. Experiments dealing with the flow hydraulics in the sheet of overland flow have been used to verify the kinematic wave theory and to define the character of roughness and resistance to flow. A second group of experiments ...
