Short summary
This study explores how catchment heterogeneity and variability can be summarized in simplified models, representing the dominant hydrological processes. We apply simple dynamical system approach (Kirchner, 2009) in the Ardèche catchment (south-east France). The simple dynamical system hypothesis works especially well in wet conditions (peaks and recessions are well modelled) and for granite catchments, which are likely to be characterized by shallow subsurface flow.
