Groundwater discharge zones supply baseflow, provide critical thermal refugia for aquatic organisms, and serve as point sources of nutrients and contaminants to aquatic ecosystems. Despite their importance, the spatial distribution and the water quality effects of groundwater discharge zones across river networks are seldom predicted at regional scales due to the highly spatially heterogeneous distribution.
