A note on estimating urban roof runoff with a forest evaporation model



A note on estimating urban roof runoff with a forest evaporation model



Hydrological Processes 22(8): 1230-1233



A model developed for estimating the evaporation of rainfall intercepted by forest canopies is applied to estimate measurements of the average runoff from the roofs of six houses made in a previous study of hydrological processes in an urban environment. The model is applied using values of the mean rates of wet canopy evaporation and rainfall derived previously for forests and an estimate of the roof storage capacity derived from the data collected in the previous study.
