Increasingly, groundwater and surface water are thought of as a single source [Winter, 1998]. This is due to the frequent groundwater-surface water exchanges that can occur on a varying spatial and temporal scale within a watershed. Geology and topography are two key factors in dictating the spatial frequency of these exchanges [Winter, 1999]. Understanding groundwater-surface water exchanges both temporally and spatially is critical to managing watersheds effectively. Quantifying these exchanges can be further complicated by the presence of karst geology within a watershed [Lauber and Goldscheider, 2014]. Large karst features can supply groundwater to surface waters with differing quantity and quality compared to groundwater sourced from the rest of the soil/geologic matrix.
