Measurements of the energy budget of a pine forest were made on 70 days when the canopy was wet. Out of 245 20‐min periods when the canopy was wholly wet, 173 were occasions when the latent heat flux exceeded the net radiation, the additional energy being provided by a downward flux of sensible heat. Under the same level of radiation the average rate of evaporation of intercepted precipitation has been found to be three times the average rate of transpiration, so that the loss by evaporation of intercepted precipitation is only partly compensated by the suppression of transpiration. It is concluded that reliable estimates of the water resources of forested areas require a separate calculation of the interception and transpiration components of the total evaporation loss.
