Abstract

This paper presents a model that simulates the size distribution and erosivity of raindrops and throughfall drops. It utilizes existing models of rainfall drop size distribution and fall velocity and combines them with newly collated evidence of throughfall drop size distributions. The model is sensitive to parameters that are easily measured or estimated : rainfall intensity, the mean volume drop diameter of the intercepted throughfall, canopy cover, and canopy height
