Effect of Vegetation Cover on Rain Water Harvesting

AE Alizadeh, A.
Ferdowsi university of mashhad, Iran


Vegetation influences the run oft cycle through different processes, such as evapotranspiration, interception, and reducing flow velocity._ In an investigation, the effect of vegetation management on water yield of three small watershed was studied. Management included burning and hand removal of all vegetation cover. Rainfall and collected run off were measured for each of the precipitation. The result show that both type of management increase harvested water compare to control watershed. However the effect of burning was more significant.
