Evapotranspiration Data Management in California
This paper will discuss components of the California Irrigation Management Information System (CIMIS). CIMIS is an automated agricultural weather network operated by the California Department...

Simulated Citrus Water Use from Shallow Groundwater
Citrus groves in south Florida are planted on poorly-drained soils that support a shallow water table which can contribute some or all of the citrus evapotranspiration (ET) requirement...

Applications of Remote Sensing to Hydrology
This paper pulls together examples of current applications of remote sensing information to hydrology. Topics covered include rainfall, snow hydrology, soil moisture, evapotranspiration,...

Predicting Water Demand in Agricultural Regions Using Time Series Forecasts of Reference Crop Evapotranspiration
Overall, it can be said that the time series model developed in this study did provide superior forecasting results for the Brawley, CA, site. This indicates that the monthly reference...

Standard Reference Evapotranspiration Calculations: REF-ET
REF-ET is a PC software program for computing standard calculations of reference evapotranspiration (Eto) and associated variables. Computations...

ETBC: Interactive Software for Blaney-Criddle Estimates of Evapotranspiration
ETBC is a menu-driven computer program which calculates monthly evapotranspiration (ET) using the USDA Soil Conservation Service version of the Blaney-Criddle formula, as described in...

Predicting Water Quality as Affected by ET Using the Root Zone Water Quality Model
The Root Zone Water Quality Model (RZWQM) is a physically based simulation model used to predict water and solute movement running from, moving through, and leaching out of the root zone....

Automated Lysimeter for Irrigation and Drainage Control
Knowledge of crop evapotranspiration (ETc), the combined process of evaporation and plant transpiration, is important in agriculture for scheduling...

UCD Drag Plate Lysimeter—Momentum and Mass Transfers
The second large (6.1 m dia., 0.97 m deep) lysimeter built at the University of California, Davis (UCD) was largely the brainchild of Dr. F.A. Brooks, the initial Project leader of a U.S....

Lysimeter-based Water Balance Study in Japan
Research on the water balance of agricultural land has been conducted using lysimeters for various objectives in Japan since the 1950s. In this paper, research for two major objectives...

Lysimeter Use in Water Rights Determination
In the Western United States, a water right (the legal right to divert water from a stream) is a property right. The impact a water right has upon a stream is commonly defined through...

Direct Load Cell-Based Weighing Lysimeter System
A low-cost weighing lysimeter system is described which is capable of measuring evapotranspiration with an accuracy of 0.05-0.10 mm. A two-lysimeter system with electronic data logger...

Lysimeter-Based Evapotranspiration Research in Portugal
The experience in lysimeter-based evapotranspiration research in Portugal is reported. Main results are presented as well as the practical consequences of these studies. The analysis points...

Field Experience with Hydraulic Weighing Lysimeters
Hydraulic weighing lysimeters can be a reliable and relatively inexpensive source of actual crop evapotranspiration (ET) data for field water use studies and crop coefficient development....

Environmental Requirements of Lysimeters
Some of the more common environmental problems affecting measurement of evapotranspiration (Et) with lysimeters are discussed, including deviation...

Using Weighing Lysimeters to Develop Evapotranspiration Crop Coefficients
Weighing lysimeters provide an accurate means of measuring evapotranspiration (ET), the evaporative loss of water from growing crops. Two weighing lysimeters were installed at a research...

Grass Reference Measurements in Italy
In this paper, the description and the use of drainage and weighing lysimeters installed in different Italian locations are reported together with the results of the researches about the...

Alfalfa ET Measurements with Drainage Lysimeters
Drainage lysimeters were used to measure alfalfa evapotranspiration (ET) under a line-gradient sprinkler system in the high-elevation desert conditions of northwest New Mexico. The lysimeters...

Lysimeters Versus Buffer Areas Et and Agronomic Comparisons
Evapotranspiration (Et) from lysimeters may not represent Et of undisturbed, surrounding sites because of factors related to water, soils, plants, and even animal life. Et and agronomic...

Lysimetry for Evaporation and Transpiration Measurement
Large hydraulically weighed lysimeters were used to measure evapotranspiration (ET), evaporation (E), and transpiration (T). Weighing lysimeters for T measurements were covered to suppress...
