Precipitations, ruissellement et infiltrations dans le karst des montagnes Nakanai, 2001, Audra Ph.
Annual rainfall in this humid tropical mountain area is estimated at 12,5 mAfter 2 dry days, drained soils are able to store up to 20 mm of rainfall without any runoff in the ephemeral gulliesSo most of the karst input corresponds to slow percolation through overlying soil, as shown by typical turquoise rivers, but logging could change this in the futureConcentrated input is limited in both time and amount, even if the underground transfer can reach considerable velocities (> 1 km / h)The two main local rivers (Matali, Galowe) have low water discharges of between 30 and 40 m3/s; the ratio between low water and mean discharge is 5, 10 for high water and 50 for exceptional flooding
