The influence that the intensity and du ration of precipitations, wind speed and deficit of the saturation of the air have upon the interception of precipitations was studied in an adult forest of Pinus ra diata, near Valdivia (Lat. 39°48'S, Long. 73°14'W). The amount of water necessary to satu rate the crowns of the trees showed varia tions between 0.6 and 1.5 mm, depending this value on the intensity of precipita tions. With rains of intensity under 1.0 mm/hr, the interception gradually
