Few scientists understand better than H. L. Penman (1963) the complexity of finding out what happens to the rain:

“With few exceptions, they [i.e., field measurements] involve small differences between large quantities (of water) that cannot be measured with precision—rainfall, interception, surface runoff, streamflow, soil water content, stored water, deep percolation.”
