Baseflow and hydrograph comparisons in a data-sparse mountainous rewilding catchment

Andrew Black, Michael Macdonald

Research output: Contribution to conferencePosterpeer-review


Rewilding projects are being undertaken across the UK at a range of scales, but rarely at such a large scale as in the 230 km2 Feshie catchment in Scotland. The landowner is working towards restoring ecological potential, but the restoration of a largely absent forest cover offers potential to change annual water loss and runoff
response. This paper presents the results of 1 year of monitoring of two contrasting headwater 30 km2 catchments each above 500 m OD, comparing median empirical hydrographs with tracer results and predictions from BFIHOST. Implications for flood risk are reviewed.
