Annual rate of evaporation in upper San Joaquin River Basin decreased with increase in elevation; there is pronounced linear decrease to approximately 4000 ft; between 4000 ft and 8000 ft, decrease becomes progressively smaller; above 8000 ft decrease is small; normal evaporation characteristics of region, for practical applications, may be determined from limited field data.
