Abstract:
Interception loss, throughfall and stemflow were measured in the unlogged and logged forest areas of Central Kalimantan, Indonesia for a period of 18 months. This involved 55 rainfall events in the unlogged forest and 99 rainfall events in the logged-over forest areas, each corresponding to a single storm or to several storms. The Gash's analytical model and the Ratter physically-based model were used to estimate the sensitivity of interception loss to canopy structure and climatic parameters. The cumulative rainfall interception loss were found to be 11% and 6% of gross precipitation in the unlogged and logged forest areas, respectively. The model performance, at this stage, could not be further elaborated, since they are still tested and adapted to our field data.
