Hi list!

In the documentation of r.watershed (grass 6.4) I found that it's 
possible to use the following (optional) input map:

Input map: amount of overland flow per cell. This map indicates the 
amount of overland flow units that each cell will contribute to the 
watershed basin model. Overland flow units represent the amount of 
overland flow each cell contributes to surface flow. If omitted, a value 
of one (1) is assumed. The algorithm is D8 flow accumulation.

How is it possible to obtain  this map,  starting  from  a  DEM?

Thank you
