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.

Short summary
A study has developed a simple model to estimate annual interception loss with temporal resolution effects. The model required minimum input and the amount of the interception loss from an artificial lowland tropical forest was determine with this model. The interception values has been compared with results calculated using original Gash model, modified Gash model and measured data. The findings show that the model can be applied to estimate the interception loss with 0.18 to 2.71% differences.
