Karstic rivers are hydrogeologically conditioned to have spatial and seasonal changes in their discharge . In the high plateau of Paderborn (Paderborner Hochfläche), the left tributary of the Lippe, Alme, itself and some of its tributaries are temporary rivers due to fluctuations of groundwater levels (Hungerbrunnen).
