Abstract. The objective of this paper is to present the application of interception model developed in artificial lowland tropical forest. This model estimates annual canopy interception loss with temporal resolution effects. A 12-month data from 2 plots in study area were collected and the measured interception loss was compared with results calculated using original Gash, modified Gash and the interception model developed. The results show that the model can be applied to estimate annual interception loss.
