Definitions for "Intermittent"
A flow that occurs only seasonally when the water table is at the maximum level. The drainage network is composed of ephemeral, intermittent and perennial streams and the network expands during rainstorms and extends to limits affected by antecedent conditions especially antecedent moisture. Flow may occur along intermittent streams for several months each year but will seldom occur when the water table is lowered during the dry season ( Thomas and Goudie 2000).
