Radiant Energy Utilized in Evapotranspiration1
- C. B. Tanner and
- E. R. Lemon2
An evaluation of the amount of radiant energy utilized in evapotranspiration under field conditions briefly considers the radiation balance, the various components of the energy balance and their relative magnitudes, and the crop and soil factors influencing the amount of the net radiation exchange utilized in evapotranspiration. Data presented show that when soil moisture is available and a substantial crop cover shades the ground most of the net radiation is used in the evapotranspiration process.Please view the pdf by using the Full Text (PDF) link under 'View' to the left.
