Short summary
We present a three-parameter streamflow elasticity model as a function of precipitation, potential evaporation, and change in groundwater storage applicable at both seasonal and annual scales. The analysis of the modified equation at annual and seasonal scale indicated that the groundwater and surface water storage change contributes significantly to the streamflow elasticity.
