Short summary
The hydrological functioning of western African headwater wetlands remains poorly understood, despite their potential for small-scale farming and their role in streamflow production. We found that land cover changes significantly affect water budgets, and pedo-geological features control dry season baseflow. These are the results of virtual experiments with a physically based critical zone model evaluated against streamflow, evapotranspiration, soil moisture, water table and water storage data.
