I am doing a pHD regarding water flow systems in a watershed. In order to
estimate the potential of the intercepted part of preciptation I found this
I = 0.2 * LAI (Dickinson, 1984)
So, I need to know the Leaf Area Index for the different kind of vegetation we
can find in central europa.
As I am regarding the variation of the diferent elements of the hydrological
cycle over one year (using a monthly basis) I need to have an idea of the
variation of the LAI too.
Any comment on this relation or help for finding the LAI would be greatly
