Paper Abstract

The crown canopy interception amount to precipitation has nearly relationships to forest species, density, coverage degree and heights etc. Difficulties to analyze crown canopy interception amount to precipitation are attributed to the widespread forest areas with complicated plants species and sparse precipitation observation stations in East China. Resolving these problems are the keys of the study. The author took Guixi County that is located in Jiangxi Province in Southeast China with subtropical climate as an experimental area to study the variation features of forest crown canopy interception to annual precipitation involved trees species, altitudes and geographical locations applying RS and GIS technology, which can provide scientific basis to dynamic research on hydrology ecological capacities of forest.
