Short summary
Solute concentrations in headwater streams vary with discharge due to changing flow paths through the catchment during precipitation events. A comparison of stream chemistry across three headwater catchments reveals that solute heterogeneity across each landscape controls how different solutes respond to increasing discharge. Solute heterogeneity is at least partially controlled by landscape distributions of vegetation and soil organic matter.
