Streamflow gains and losses. This animation shows gaged stream inflows and outflows as well as simulated gains and losses for the entire stream network in the ground-water flow model. Blue indicates stream loss to the ground-water system; red indicates stream gain for each model cell. The graphs summarize annual values of gaged flow and simulated gain and loss. The linked animation of the map and graphs illustrates important spatial and temporal characteristics of the stream-aquifer system.
