Abstract: Wetland water flow is sensitive to evapotranspiration and rainfall, and to the internal configuration of substrates and biota. All wetlands are subject to significant dead zones and bypassing. Simple modeling tools exist for dealing with such non-ideal hydraulic conditions, and in many instances must be used to provide reasonable process descriptions.
