During a seepage run, flow of a stream is measured at a number of sites, generally during a short period of time. Changes in the flow of the stream between pairs of sites can be used to identify stream reaches over which flow either does not change, increases, or decreases. If the effects of tributary flows, irrigation diversions, and other surface inflows or outflows are accounted for, then the interactions of ground water with the stream can be better understood. This was important for the streamflow-routing model because interactions of ground water and streamflow along the middle Humboldt River can be complex, and can change depending on time of year and stream stage.
