Merging patterns and processes of diffuse pollution in urban watersheds: A connectivity assessment
Published Online: May 03 2021
DOI: 10.1002/wat2.1525
Owing to the on‐going urban expansion accompanied by an anticipated increase of flash floods, diffuse water pollution in cities is likely to increase. The complexity of pollution patterns and their distribution mechanisms in cities are reviewed in the context of urban connectivity of pollution. Explicit handling of urban connectivity may guide the re‐design of urban drainage strategies toward more decentralized and sustainable management approaches of urban water resources.

Baseflow and transmission loss: A review
Published Online: May 08 2021
DOI: 10.1002/wat2.1527
Streamflows that occur between rainfall events may be sustained by groundwater inflows or else may recede in response to evapotranspiration and seepage. The rate at which this occurs is often predicted using linear models, even though the governing processes are known to be largely nonlinear.
