Abstract: Distributed physically-based hydrologic modeling of humid watersheds with shallow soils is complicated by non-Hortonian runoff production mechanisms. This paper presents a numerical experimental methodology for evaluating the frequency, duration and extent of saturation excess variable source areas. The methodology considers rainfall spatio-temporal variability and antecedent moisture conditions, with and without soil macropores in the downslope direction. This study allows examination of non-Hortonian runoff production mechanisms with implications for two-dimensional physically based watershed modeling.
