The investigation analyses the effects of local bottom slope and roughness coefficient variations in overland flow over a plane by using the kinematic wave theory. Results are compared with the usual approach, and it is found that certain configurations of surface topography and roughness characteristics yield results, that deviate from the usual predictions.
