Throughfall was measured for a year at five-min intervals in 11 collectors randomly located on two plots in a second-growth redwood forest at the Caspar Creek Experimental Watersheds. Monitoring at one plot continued two more years, during which stemflow from 24 trees was also measured. Comparison of throughfall and stemflow to rainfall measured in adjacent clearings indicates throughfall and stemflow accounted for 75.1 and 2.5 percent, respectively, of annual rainfall, while 22.4 percent was… CONTINUE READING
