Why do some rivers Flood? Factors making a flashy hydrograph
Flashy and Flat Hydrographs
Precipitation intensity Torrential Rain And so?
Precipitation intensity Torrential Rain Ground cant absorb it fast enough – overland flow Flash Flood
Steady Rain And so? Factor 1 – Precipitation intensity
snowfall And so? Factor 1 – Precipitation type snowfall And so?
Types of Underlying Rock Granite is impermeable And so
Types of Underlying Rock chalk and most limestones re permeable And so
Soils Sand is permeable but clay is impermeable And so
Soils – saturated / frozen Sand and clay if saturated or frozen are impermeable And so
Forested Forest much interception And so
Deforested Deforested no interception And so
Urbanisation Covers ground in impermeable materials And so
Urbanisation Installs storm drains And so
