Anthropogenic and Biophysical Controls on Low Flow Hydrology in the Southeastern United States

Abstract The original paradigm of urban hydrology identified links between urbanization and changes in hydrologic processes. One of the prominent relationships identified was increased impervious surface coverage decreased subsurface recharge and subsequently low flows. This does not consider watershed‐specific biophysical or anthropogenic characteristics that could increase low flows, such as direct discharge from wastewater treatment […]
