Depth of RunoffIn hydrologic terms, the total runoff from a drainage basin, divided by its area. For convenience in comparing runoff with precipitation, the term is
usually expressed in inches of depth during a given period of time over the drainage area or acre-feet per square mile. Direct RunoffIn hydrologic terms, the runoff entering stream channels promptly after rainfall or snowmelt. Superposed on base runoff, it forms the bulk of the
hydrograph of a flood.Ground Water RunoffThat part of the runoff which has passed into the ground, has become ground water, and has been discharged into a stream channel
as spring, or seepage water.Inches of RunoffIn hydrologic terms, the volume of water from runoff of a given depth over the entire drainageRunoffIn hydrologic terms, the part of precipitation that flows toward the streams on the surface of the ground or within the ground. Runoff is composed of
baseflow and surface runoff.Surface RunoffIn hydrologic terms, the runoff that travels overland to the stream channel. Rain that falls on the stream channel is often lumped with this quantity.Threshold RunoffIn hydrologic terms, the runoff in inches from a rain of specified duration that causes a small stream to slightly exceed bankfull. When available, flood
stage is used instead of slightly over bankfull.
