Quick Reference

The movement diagonally downslope of water through the soil, as opposed to the vertical movement known as percolation. It may follow natural percolines in the soil. Throughflow is a major factor in the hydrology of a drainage basin where the rocks underlying the soil are impermeable. See Kirkby and Chorley (1967) Bull. Int. Assoc. Sci. Hydrol. 12.
