An aerodynamic method to compute evaporation
An aerodynamic method estimating evaporation on the basis of the non-linear surface layer model (Shahawi 1983), has been established. Evaporation rate, E, could be estimated over land or water surface. The values of evaporation estimated from the derived relation, are influenced by an easily obtainable coefficient, S, which represents a combination of wind speed, atmospheric stability, heights of measurements, roughness of the surface, barometric pressure, and density of the air.
Comparative studies between the re3ults of the derived equation, and the measured values revealed considerable accuracy and validity of the proposed method.
