We present a brief overview of methods suitable for measuring or estimating infiltration. runoff or drainage. Since an exhaustive mrvior is not fcaaibie in the context of this paper, the emphasis h on field methods which are not too complicated or expensive, and suitable for use in the Sudano Sahelian zone. Methods for measurements over large areas, e.& catchments. are not included. Obviously, for natural events where interception of rainfall by the vegetation can be ignored. Idbation and runoff together equal precipitation: onh. two of the three procuacs need be quantified to quantib the other. For each method a brief dewription is given, together with a suitable reference for further information.
