Net rainfall at the UMBS AmeriFlux tower

Net rainfall at the UMBS AmeriFlux tower


Abstract: 
Net rainfall sampled at 20 locations at the University of Michigan Biological Station's AmeriFlux tower during the summer of 2011. 10 sampling points were below regions of dense canopy, where canopy interception is theoretically higher, and 10 sampling points were below regions of thin canopy. This design was repeated for six precipitation events throughout the season.

Methods: 

Net rainfall is collected at 10 random locations underneath regions of dense canopy and 10 random locations underneath regions of thin canopy for rainfall events throughout the season. All data are collected from the 50x50 meter plot near the Ameriflux tower at the University of Michigan Biological Station. Rainfall was collected using 1L plastic bottles attached to 100mm diameter funnels elevated 0.5-1 m off the ground using a wooden dowel. After each rain event, volume of rainfall collected in the bottles was recorded in milliliters and converted to millimeters. This design was repeated for six rainfall events over the course of the summer.
