Interception of precipitation by pole-stage Sitka spruce and lodgepole pine and mature Sitka spruce at Kielder Forest, Northumberland



Interception of precipitation by pole-stage Sitka spruce and lodgepole pine and mature Sitka spruce at Kielder Forest, Northumberland



Forestry 59(1): 29-38



Interception loss was estimated for 3 yr in adjacent unthinned 25-yr-old stands of Sitka spruce and lodgepole pine and for 2 yr in a 63-yr-old selectively thinned stand of Sitka spruce, from measurements of gross precipitation, throughfall and stemflow. For the years 1977-78, 1978-79 and 1979-80, interception losses in pole-stage Sitka spruce were 32, 28 and 27% of gross precipitation respectively while those in lodgepole pine were 33, 29 and 26 %.
