    Description

    When forest watershed management research was begun at the Hubbard Brook Experimental Forest in the White Mountains of New Hampshire in 1955, we felt certain that at least one aspect of hydrology would not require study-interception. Interception has been studied for a long time, in fact, as early as 1889 (Horton, 1919). It has been well known that a certain amount of rainfall or snow clings to leaves and branches and never reaches the ground.
