McDonnell Abstract: * We use directed percolation theory to model hillslope hydrological response. * We examine flow path dynamics of fill, spill, connectivity and associated threshold. * We explore various factors that affect the pattern and timing of hillslope runoff. * Soil and topographic heterogeneities control complex non-linear response. * Evidence that hydrogeomorphic processes conspire to optimise hillslope drainage.
