Chappell, N.A., and Franks, S.W. 1996. Property distributions and flow structure in the Slapton Wood Catchment, Field Studies, 8, 559-575.



Statistical and spatial patterns of saturated hydraulic conductivity and soil moisture have been observed within the Slapton Wood Catchment, Devon. These data combined with visual observations of exposures provide evidence for a more complex subsurface flow structure than has been described previously. This may have profound implications for the explanation of river hydrograph behaviour and the migration of nitrates towards the eutrophic Slapton Ley.
