    A river is a natural flowing watercourse, usually freshwater, flowing towards an ocean, sea, lake or another river. In some cases a river flows into the ground and becomes dry at the end of its course without reaching another body of water. Small rivers can be referred to using names such as stream, creek, brook, rivulet, and are no official definitions for the generic term river .

Observed Flow.   Understanding the fate and transport of nitrogen in agricultural watersheds is critical for implementing conservation systems that protect water quality and sustain crop productivity and profitability. However, the role of soils and hydrology on nitrogen cycling in agricultural watersheds is still limited. Here we propose to investigate the hydrologic regime .

During base flow Rn activity in the Merced River is above cpm; whereas Rn activity is groundwater contribution during base flow. A plot of δD verses δ 18 O shows that water samples fall along the global meteoric water line (GMWL) with little to no evaporation (Figure 3).Cited by: Overall, the groundwater contribution in surface waters was 14 to 24% higher in post flood conditions than during the other three surveys of baseflow and moderate flow conditions.

High-Cl- groundwater was observed in El Portal groundwater, a spring at the top of Yosemite Valley, and the Merced River during baseflow. Although its contributions to stream flow is lowest compared to other endmembers, its flow rates are more stable.

Abstract. Environmental heterogeneity is ubiquitous, but environmental systems are often analyzed as if they were homogeneous instead, resulting in aggregation errors that are rarely explored and almost never quantified. Here I use simple benchmark tests to explore this general problem in one specific context: the use of seasonal cycles in chemical or isotopic Cited by:   Two components controlling baseflow (streamflow from August to October) in the Upper Merced River were identified: shallow subsurface runoff from snowmelt infiltration and groundwater from fractured : F.

Surface water, snow, groundwater, and springs were sampled seasonally from July to October Snow 36Cl/Cl ratios are times lower than in the Merced River water, but 36Cl/Cl ratios in the river increase times from baseflow to the snowmelt season.

Aggregation and scaling of baseflow dynamics and groundwater contributions Traditional assumptions in tracer hydrology approaches such as end member mixing and their incorporation in catchment-scale rainfall-runoff models assume well mixed sources of runoff in different water stores (Brooks et al.,Birkel et al., a).Cited by: Groundwater contributions to baseflow in the Merced River: processes, flow paths, and residence times: Cover title.

Although its contributions to stream flow is lowest compared to other endmembers, its flow rates are more by: 1. Although river nitrate concentrations under high flow conditions are often elevated compared to those under baseflow conditions, and under certain hydrogeological conditions groundwater discharging to rivers under high flow conditions may be derived from shallow flow paths with high nitrate concentrations (Dahl et al., ), the relative Cited by: Merced River From its source on the south side of Mount Lyell at 13, feet, through a glacially carved canyon within Yosemite National Park, the river flows downstream to Lake McClure Reservoir.

Both soil water in the unsaturated zone and regional groundwater were not significant contributors to streamflow. The contributions of snowmelt runoff and subsurface flow, when expressed as discharge, were linearly correlated with streamflow discharge (R 2 of –). These results suggest that subsurface flow is generated from the soil Cited by: 4.

The model predicted that perched groundwater within the study area provided 0 to 7 m3/d of baseflow to the river; however, baseflow contributions declined shortly following the decline of inflow upstream of the study area (early June).

Decline of perched aquifer. Pedro Basin. Ground water is the primary source of water in the basin for many uses, including riparian, agricultural, private, public, and industrial; and supply for the military installation at Fort Huachuca.

The estimated groundwater flow is consistent with previous estimates of 64 and 76 L-s −1 per river km (Zamora et al.

The Merced River (/ m ɜːr ˈ s ɛ d /), in the central part of the U.S. state of California, is a mile ( km)-long tributary of the San Joaquin River flowing from the Sierra Nevada into the San Joaquin is most well known for its swift and steep course through the southern part of Yosemite National Park, where it is the primary watercourse flowing through Yosemite : El Portal, Livingston.

Groundwater levels below the Cosumnes River are currently as low as 55 ft below the river channel, resulting in a hydraulic disconnection between much of the river and the regional aquifer. Most of the lower river does not receive baseflow contributions and the river is in effluent or losing conditions.

The hydraulic disconnection. • Streamflow in the upper Merced River is primarily composed of overland flow, shallow subsurface flow and groundwater, even during the low flow season from August to October (baseflow ≠ groundwater).

• Snow water equivalent (SWE) in spring significantly affects the contribution of overland flow, but does not necessarily affect that of.
