Canopy Rainfall Intercepted by Nineteen Tree Species Grown on a Phytocapped Landfill
International Journal of Waste Resources
Phytocapping" is an alternative landfill capping technique that consists of two components, viz. soil cover and vegetation. The soil cover stores water during rainfall events and the vegetation; in this study, trees remove stored water via transpiration and reduce the amount of rain reaching the ground surface via canopy rainfall interception. These attributes contribute significantly to hydrological balance of the phytocap thereby preventing rainwater from entering the buried waste.
