Abstract Surface run-off may be generated when rainfall intensity exceeds infiltration capacity, or when the soil profile is saturated. Both types of overland flow may occur in hilly agricultural loess regions. It was shown with pressure head and run-off measurements that Hortonian overland flow occurs during summer rain events. A two-dimensional water flow model could simulate pressure head changes and run-off. Simulated potential run-off for the transect studied was three times as high. This indicates effects of surface ponding and the probable location of this particular transect in a region with high run-off production.
