Abstract Studies using a rainfall simulator were carried out to test the stochastic hypothesis embedded in the original formulation of the stochastic interception model and to determine the vegetation-dependent stochastic model parameters. These studies showed that for all the species investigated: (a) the rate of wetting was greatest for small volume drops—this is in agreement with the stochastic wetting hypothesis; (b) the maximum canopy storage that was achieved is not, as is conventionally… CONTINUE READING
