AbstractThis study aimed to determine the water loss quantity of surface soil from temperate forests after severe earthquake. We established three plots at each of the landslide and non-landslide Cupressus funebris stands at Shiyan site, two plots in the landslide and three in the non-landslide Cryptomeria fortunei forest stands at the Shuangdian site near the fault belt of the Wenchuan Earthquake. Each of the plots was 20 m x 20 m. In June and October, for analysis of soil water properties, soil samples were collected by aluminum cylinders (100 cm(3)) at each of three soil layers (0-10, 10-20, 20-40 cm), respectively, at the center and near the four corners of each plot. We found that saturated water content and capillary water capacity were lower in landslide plots than in non-landslide ones, with the landslide-induced soil water loss at the forest stands ranging from 74 to 357 t/hm(2), indicating that earthquake-induced landslide dried the surface soil of forest. Such earthquake-induced soil drying varied with different forest stands. Compared with that of C. funebris, the surface soil of C. fortunei lost less soil water, suggesting the greater water retention ability of the latter. The water stress created by earthquake-induced landslides may be the dominant contributor to the tree mortality in C. funebris and C. fortunei in the fault zone of the Wenchuan Earthquake.
