Much of this intercepted snow melts and drips to the ground, infiltrating the soil; additional snow is lost to sublimation and evaporation. The snowpack that does form is protected by the forest canopy from direct exposure to the atmosphere. In contrast, deeper accumulations of snow (and much greater amounts of water) may occur on recently cutover areas; in one study, water equivalents were two to three times greater in a c1earcut than in an adjacent old-growth plot (Berris and Harr 1987). Furthermore, the snowpack in the c1earcut is fully exposed to turbulent warm air and rain; it is actually latent and sensible heat transfer from the warm, moist air mass to the snow surface during a storm that produces most of the melting (Berris and Harr 1987).

One important component of stand-level structural diversity is related to canopy density. There are locales within the stand where light levels are higher (canopy gaps) and there is rich development of the understory. There are also areas where a dense overstory, such as of western hemlock and western redcedar, produces heavily shaded locales essentially barren of understory plants. This variability in light conditions, as well as below-ground competition for moisture and nutrients, contributes to the incredible complexity and richness of understories in old-growth forests.
