The concentrations of dissolved chemicals characterizing a period of time are reported as volume-weighted averages. These averages are computed by summing the amount of chemical from individual samples of precipitation or stream water during the period and then dividing this value by the total amount of water during the period. Nutrient flux (see Chap. 4) across ecosystem boundaries is determined by two methods. , g/ha-month). Streamwater outputs are calculated by multiplying the measured concentrations of dissolved chemicals in streamwater samples taken at the beginning and at the end of the interval by the streamflow on those dates.

The ideal water-year begins and ends for a period that shows little interannual change in watershed water storage, often a point in the year of lowest water storage. , soil water and snow). In watersheds of the HBEF, streamflow is largely dependent on (1) precipitation, (2) the capacity for water storage in the soil and thereby the amount of water stored in the soil at any time, and (3) the amount of water stored in the snowpack. 99 (see Federer et al. 1990). 95) and a regression slope closest to one.

There is a major need for additional quantitative measurements to partition evapotranspiration into evaporation from the forest canopy and the ground and transpiration. 001) even though there has been a statistically significant increase in both Streamflow and Evapotranspiration 27 Annual Streamflow or ET (mm/yr) 1600 1400 1200 1000 800 1964 600 400 200 600 800 1000 1200 1400 1600 1800 2000 Annual Precipitation (mm/yr) Fig.
