Abstract

Modifications to the land use of a small catchment, including clearance, cultivation and an increase in drainage density, are shown to have influenced a number of solute characteristics. Contrasts are drawn between three source areas| an unmodified subcatchment draining an area of mixed deciduous woodland, and a tile drain system and drainage ditch receiving water from cultivated areas. Not only are the modifications identified in terms of mean solute concentrations, but it is also shown that a change in land use alters the interaction between independant hydrological and meteorological variables, and solute response. A tentative explanation is provided for long term solute behaviour in relation to a number of biological geochemical and hydrological controls. (The A.).
