The stagnant zones in nested flow systems have been assumed to be critical to accumulation of transported matter, such as metallic ions and hydrocarbons in drainage basins. However, little quantitative research has been devoted to prove this assumption. In this paper, the transport of age mass is used as an example to demonstrate that transported m...


... On the other hand, a larger watershed can also increase the rainfall contribution to the intermediate flow, which is ultimately discharged to the low-lying streams. Local and intermediate flow systems are characterized by different groundwater residence times (Jiang et al., 2012). The two asynchronous signals in the baseflow can also interfere with each other. ...
