The purpose of this study was to measure quantitatively the effectiveness of precipitation by determining the amount and timing (i.e. distribution-in-time) of plant absorption of moisture during the summers of 1965 and 1966. In addition the effectiveness of precipitation was related to some causal factors, especially those factors which help provide a procedure for calculation of this effectiveness.
