How much, when, and why surface runoff occurs on mountainous range-watershed lands is of vital concern to wildland managers who must husband limited soil moisture to maintain productivity and at the same time protect downstream areas from damage by floods and sedimentation. This paper describes the rainfall and infiltration characteristics responsible for overland flow on some of the mountain lands in Utah. Basic data are combined in three theoretical analyses to show (1) the amount of surface runoff to be expected from a number of sites when subjected to a major storm; (2) the minimum storm that will produce runoff; and (3) the frequency at which runoff can be expected. The results indicate the great diversity of surface runoff on the mountain lands and the ways in which resource management can augment or reduce the hazard of overland flow.
