Details

This report reviews the current state of knowledge of the nature of the hyporheic zone, and of the processes that occur at the groundwater–surface water interface. It describes the importance of these processes for pollutant and/or nutrient attenuation and critically evaluates the current definitions and conceptual models of the hyporheic zone.
