What is the relationship between infiltration and surface runoff? What are some of the factors that enhance infiltration? What are some of the factors that enhance surface runoff?

To determine

The relationship between infiltration and surface runoff, the factors that enhance infiltration, and some of the factors that enhance the surface runoff.

Explanation

The precipitation falling on the ground surface may get infiltrated, evaporated or would undergo runoff. In case, if the surface is saturated with water,  it can accommodate no more water into it and infiltration will not take place, rather surface runoff occurs, provided that the water does not reach the atmosphere through evaporation. Hence, as infiltration increases, the surface runoff declines, and vice versa.

There prevails several factors that could improve the infiltration of water...
