SOILSERIES Hydrology is tabular data that can be used in conjunction with any of the NATMAP products except NATMAP soilscapes.
SOILSERIES Hydrology provides extensive information on the water regime and hydrology of each soil. This is the essential dataset for those involved with groundwater modelling and flow prediction. It has many uses in the environmental sector and applications in related sectors.

SOILSERIES Hydrology data and description
The table below describes the various properties within this data product. Each table contains the information outlined below.
|Property||Example from data||Description|
|SERIES||4||Soil series code|
|SERIES_NAME||ADVENTURERS'||Soil series name|
|DROCK||999||Depth (cm) to rock|
|HYD_ROCK||14||Hydrological rock type, Boorman, Hollis and Lilley (1995)|
|DGLEY||0||Depth to gleying (cm) 999 implies NO gley layer|
|DIMP_DP||999||Depth (cm) to slowly permeable layer, i.e. in which effectively there is no downward percolation of water - 999 implies NO slowly permeable layer (Jones 1985, Robson and Thomasson 1977).|
|IAC_DP||200||Integrated air capacity (downward percolation), Hodgson (1976, 73-83).|
|DIMP_UD||999||Depth (cm) to slowly permeable layer - upward diffusion, ie in which effectively there is no downward percolation of water (Jones 1985, Robson and Thomasson 1977) - 999 implies NO slowly permeable layer|
|IAC_UD||200||Integrated air capacity (upward diffusion), Hodgson (1976, 73-83)|
|HOST||11||HOST (Hydrology of Soil Type) class, Boorman, Hollis and Lilley (1995)

|BYFLOW||N||Bypass flow (Yes/No)|
|BFI||0.93||Baseflow index. Dimensionless variable (range 0 to 1.0) that expresses the fraction of the average flow volume represented by the contribution from groundwater storage|
|SPR||2||Standard Percentage Run-off. Dimensionless variable (range 0 to 100 %) that represents the percentage of rainfall that causes the short-term increase in flow at the catchment outlet seen after the storm event|
LandIS, or the Land Information System is one of the offerings of the Soil and Agrifood Institute. Incorporating the National Soil Resources Institute, CSAI is the largest UK national and international centre for research and development, consultancy and training in soils and their interaction with the atmosphere, land use, geology and water resources.
