Surface runoff is the excess water that flows over the land when soil is infiltrated to full capacity. This is a major component of the hydrologic cycle. Surface runoff can be generated either by rainfall or by the melting of snow, ice, or glaciers. The interaction between precipitation and surface runoff is highly dependent on meteorological factors and the physical geology and topography of the catchment.
