The effect of triangular excess hyetographs on catchment area runoff process is investigated, thereby fixing the precipitation time. The approach accounts for the kinematic wave theory and allows a discussion of arbitrary hyetograph shapes. The results are compared with these originating from a uniform excess rainfall and underline the importance of proper account for the hyetograph shape.
