AbstractDeep soil water infiltration is a key hydrological process in seasonally frozen regions, and displays a distinct behavior from that in other unfrozen regions; however, the seasonal dynamics and key controls of deep soil water infiltration in the seasonally frozen region of the Qinghai-Tibet plateau (QTP) are still poorly understood. In this study, we examine the seasonal dynamics of deep soil water infiltration, and attempt to quantitatively assess the relative influences of several driving factors by applying a random forests statistical analysis. The following key results were obtained. Deep soil water infiltration shows marked seasonal variation. Rainfall intensity exerts little effect on the seasonal dynamics of deep soil water infiltration as almost all rainfall returns to the atmosphere via evapotranspiration. No infiltration occurred when the depth of lower layer frozen soil reached 29 cm, whereas deep infiltration increased during the thawing of soil frost, suggesting that deep infiltration is impeded by soil freezing. Overall, the observed seasonal dynamics of deep soil water infiltration and volumetric soil moisture content were similar during the freeze-thaw process. Furthermore, deep soil water infiltration was more strongly influenced by deep volumetric soil moisture than by shallower volumetric soil moisture. Our results suggest that the topsoil Mattic Epipedon, soil organic matter content, and root systems' role in vertical moisture movement should be taken into consideration when modeling hydrological processes in alpine meadows.
