Short summary
In order to understand hillslope hydrological processes during rainfall runoff events, rainfall characteristics and responses of soil moisture at the hillslope scale were explored by applying self-organizing map (SOMs) to a dataset. Combinations of upslope and downslope spatial patterns of hillslope hydrological processes, vertical flow, and lateral flow along surface or subsurface boundaries were responsible for the distinctions between the event clusters.
