The apportionment of rainfall into throughfall, stemflow and interception in certain forests of Kumaun Himalaya was assessed during the 1981 and 1982 monsoon seasons. Stemflow accounted for 0.28-0.89%, throughfall 74.7-91.5% and interception 8.1-25.0% of gross rainfall. The absolute values of throughfall, stemflow and interception were influenced by tree species. Overland flow was low for all forests, indicating that the latter are subsurface flow systems and, consequently, are specially susceptible to deforestation.
