They therefore store and transmit water and solutes over a wide spectrum of time scales, with important implications for contaminant transport, weathering rates, and stream chemistry. Catchment transit time distributions are nonstationary, reflecting fluctuations in precipitation forcing, heterogeneity in catchments themselves, and ...
