Abstract

During drought, most stream flow is derived from stored sources, primarily groundwater. In many catchments the relation between groundwater storage and discharge is non-linear, for example because the aquifer is unsaturated, because of variations in the conductivity of the aquifer. In this paper it is examined whether and how non-linearity in the storage-discharge relationship increases drought duration and severity
