Rainfall interception losses were monitored for 12 months, and related to vegetation and rainfall characteristics at the BPK-ECTF research site (Wanariset Sangai) on the upper reaches of the Mentaya river, Central Kalimantan. The rainfall interception losses were quantified, based on the records of 55 selected rainfall events within the range of 8.5–135.5 mm in the unlogged forest, and 95 rainfall events in the logged-over area. Over a 6-month-period in 1 hectare of pristine, unlogged, natural, tropical rainforest, the total amount of rainfall interception loss was 251 mm or about 11% of total gross rainfall. In the logged forest, the total rainfall interception loss over 12 months was 219 mm, or 6% of gross rainfall.

    • ...In a lowland dipterocarp forest on Borneo, Central Kalimantan, Indonesia, the rainfall interception was 11% of gross precipitation (Pg) in an unlogged natural forest and 6% of Pg in a logged forest (Asdak et al., 1998) which thus points to a decrease in interception with disturbance...

    • ...On this basis, our data suggest that rainfall interception was reduced by logging from 30 to 18% of Pg. This shift confirms earlier results in a lowland forest in Kalimantan, where the rainfall interception was 11% in a natural forest and 6% in a logged forest (Asdak et al., 1998)...
    • ...Canopy roughness may influence the exchange of water and energy with the atmosphere and may lead to enhanced interception (Asdak et al., 1998) but can probably also increase the net rainfall volume (Chappell et al., 2001)...
    • ...The canopy roughness may also be of great importance for differences in rainfall interception between logged and unlogged forest (Asdak et al., 1998; Chappell et al., 2001)...
    • ...Asdak et al., 1998) seems to be more important than any positive effect by large trees on precipitation (cf...
    • ...Thus, our results support the view by Asdak et al. (1998) that logging reduces the tree height, which may affect surface roughness, and consequently reduces the rainfall interception in tropical moist forests...

    • ...A number of interception studies have been completed in tropical (Asdak et al., 1998; Hutjes et al., 1990; Jetten, 1996; Lloyd et al., 1988), temperate broadleaf (Hörmann et al., 1996; Neal et al., 1993) and temperate conifer forests (Klaassen et al., 1998; Rutter et al., 1971; Valente et al., 1997)...
