To quantify the amount of rainfall interception by vegetation in a residential urban forest the study measured throughfall in Raleigh, NC between July and November 2010. The study analyzed 16 residential yards with varying vegetation structure to evaluate the relative importance of different descriptive measures of vegetation in influencing throughfall in an urban watershed.
