Title: Quantifying Rainfall Interception in the Urban Canopy
Date & Time: Wednesday, 14 August, 6:00PM BST, 7:00PM CEST, 8:00PM EEST.
Urban stormwater is a major contributor to surface water degradation, prompting cities to invest in green infrastructure – methods that naturally capture, store, and slowly release runoff, such as urban trees.
While rainfall interception for full canopy environments is well studied, limited research is available that characterizes the interception of open-grown trees, which are commonly found in urban areas.
Join Jon Hathaway as he shares preliminary results from his research that studies the effect of rainfall event duration, intensity and seasonal variations on the interception potential of urban trees in Knoxville Tennessee.
