Description :
This paper aims to calculate water balance of an entire tiger bush unit, including bare and vegetated areas, to validate a rain redistribution hypothesis. They monitored measurements of runoff and soil moisture content in each zone composing a tiger bush unit in Niger during a period of 4 yr, including contrasting rainy seasons. The data were monitored at a rain dependent time step.
