A procedure to isolate and investigate the watershed influence on storm runoff is presented. It offers an opportunity to study also the change in influence of particular watershed characteristics by changing the input or soil moisture state of each catchment. Weighted lake area, area of bare rocks, main stream gradient, drainage density and basin area are found to be the most significant characteristics in affecting peak runoff and time of rise on storm hydrographs in small Norwegian rivers. The intercorrelation structure of the watershed properties is examined.
