  • Dynamics of landscape features can significantly affect ecohydrological processes with strong connection to the fluxes of water, energy, and mass (pollutants and sediment). Knowledge of the spatial variability of these landscape variables is useful information in understanding how landscape patterns are related to hydrological variables including soil moisture, runoff, evapotranspiration, and groundwater flow. Among other environment parameters, topography is a determinant for magnitudes and spatial distributions of water and energy fluxes over natural landscapes.
