Abstract

The routeways and travel times of soil water flow are described in relation to precipitation inputs and the influence of soil structure. The nature of solute uptake by mobile soil water is related to the hydrological processes. The implications of soil water movement and solute uptake are assessed with respect to temporal variations in stream solute load and to solutional denudation on hillslopes.
