Short summary
To constrain water fluxes in the subsurface capable of transporting contaminants we assessed the amount of water that moves from surface to groundwater on a plateau near Los Angeles. We found that on average only 16 mm (4 %) of precipitation becomes groundwater annually. However, values vary from 0 to >1000 mm yr−1 due to topography, vegetation and surface geology. The flux is not steady over the year but happens episodically at the end of the wet season or after exceptional precipitation events.
To constrain water fluxes in the subsurface capable of transporting contaminants we assessed the...
