  • How is dry canopy evaporation called?
    Transpiration
  • How is wet canopy evaporation called?
    Interception
  • What is interception loss
    It is the portion of the precipitation that is returned to the atmosphere through evaporation from plant surfaces or is absorbed by the plant.
  • What is open-water evaporation?
    The transport of vapour as a function of the humidity gradient and the wind speed across the surface.
  • What are the four things the stomata responds to?
    1. Radiation
    2. Water vapour deficit
    3. Temperature
    4. Plant water status
  • What are the differences with the Penman-Monteith formula and the Penman formula.
    The Penman-Monteith formula includes surface resistance (rs) and the empirical wind function is replaced by aerodynamic resistance (ra).

    4. Interception from urban areas
  • What vegetation characteristics influence interception? (3 things)
    1. The amount of leaves
    2. Shape and size of leaves
    3. The height
  • What rainfall characteristics influence interception? (2 things)
