Description: In the northern Rocky Mountains, in Idaho, data collected during three winters demonstrate why there is always less snow beneath the canopy of a cedar-hemlock forest than in the adjacent small openings. The author presents as evidence the differential release of water, which originates in the canopy as throughfall-drip, thus accounting for part of the deficiency in snow water equivalent beneath the canopy by April 1. Such informative data were made possible by a new instrument designed to collect waterflow from the snowpack.
