Short summary
We determined the main components of the water balance for an undisturbed cerrado. Evapotranspiration ranged from 1.91 to 2.60mm per day for the dry and wet seasons, respectively. Canopy interception ranged from 4 to 20% and stemflow values were approximately 1% of gross precipitation. The average runoff coefficient was less than 1%, while cerrado deforestation has the potential to increase that amount up to 20-fold. The water storage may be estimated by the difference between P and ET.
