Notes: Crown Shadow Area Equations

The full text article is temporarily unavailable.

We apologise for the inconvenience. Please try again later.

Silviculturists, forest micrometeorologists, and hydrologists have interest in shade cast by tree crowns because of its influence on soil surface temperatures and on air temperatures near the ground. We provide equations which describe the boundary of illumination on sunlit crowns and estimate the amount of shade cast by tree crowns when one assumes that crown shapes can be represented by paraboloids, cones, or ellipsoids.
