Event controls on intermittent streamflow in a temperate climate

Nils Hinrich Kaplan et al.

Data sets

Time series of streamflow occurrence from 182 sites in ephemeral, intermittent and perennial streams in the Attert catchment, Luxembourg N. H. Kaplan, E. Sohrt, T. Blume, and M. Weiler https://doi.org/10.5880/FIDGEO.2019.010

CAOS rain rate and reflectivity data set of 6 disdrometres and 2 micro rain radars at 3 different heights at 6 stations in the Attert catchment, Luxembourg from Oct 2012 - Sept 2016 M. Neuper and U. Ehret https://doi.org/10.5880/FIDGEO.2018.070

Short summary
This study is analyses how characteristics of precipitation events and soil moisture and temperature dynamics during these events can be used to model the associated streamflow responses in intermittent streams. The models are used to identify differences between the dominant controls of streamflow intermittency in three distinct geologies of the Attert catchment, Luxembourg. Overall, soil moisture was found to be the most important control of intermittent streamflow in all geologies.
