Subsurface runoff

Definition (http://disc.gsfc.nasa.gov/hydrology/data-holdings/parameters/subsurface_runoff.shtml)

Subsurface runoff is the water that infiltrates in the vadose zone (unsaturated zone), from rain, snowmelt, or other sources, and moves laterally towards the streams. Vadose zone extends from the top of the ground surface to the water table. It is one of the major components in the water cycle. Subsurface runoff can be expressed in water volume (or mass) per unit of area per unit of time. (NASA)
