High Saline Water-Table Effect on Wheat Irrigation
Hydraulic, weighing lysimeters were used for five years to measure the effect of high, saline water tables on irrigation requirement of wheat. Each year the wheat was grown with no water...

Comparation of Different Forms of Penman Equation
The research was carried out near Foggia (in Southern Italy) at 90 m above sea level and at 41° 27' N latitude, using two drainage lysimeters, filled with a silt clay soil...

Relationship Between Lysimeter Area and Evapotranspiration (ET)
The lysimeter is an important instrument for measuring evapotranspiration (ET) of crops. It is widely used in the irrigation and drainage experimental stations in China. However, the areas...

A Decision Support System for Prediction of Crop Yield, Evapotranspiration, and Irrigation Management
Computer simulation models have been developed which predict growth, development, and yield for grain legumes. These models can be applied for yield prediction as well as water management...

Evapotranspiration and Growth Predictions of CERES Maize, Sorghum and Wheat in the Southern High Plains
Daily ET, leaf area index, and dry matter accumulation were predicted using CERES models for maize, sorghum, and winter wheat grown at Bushland, Texas to determine the models'...

Development of Crop Coefficients Using Lysimeters
A long term record of evapotranspiration by grass as measured with the large weighing lysimeter at the University of California at Davis provided an excellent background for the initiation...

Lysimeters for Evapotranspiration and Environmental Measurements
Lysimeters have been used extensively in the past to provide baseline information for development, calibration, and validation of evapotranspiration methods. This proceedings, Lysimeters...

History of Lysimeter Design and Use for Evapotranspiration Measurements
Lysimeters are devices for measuring percolation of water through soils and sampling soil water for chemical analyses. Lysimeters have been used for over 300 years to determine water use...

Arid Site Water Balance Using Monolith Lysimeters
Four weighing lysimeters, containing monoliths of undisturbed soil, are located at the Arid Lands Ecology Reserve near Richland, Washington (USA), and are used to measure the water balance...

Use of Lysimeters to Measure Fog Interception in Tussock Grassland New Zealand
Previous studies of the water balance of single Tussock plants in small non-weighing lysimeters over a range of elevations in east-central Otago province suggest that tussock grassland...

Representativeness of Floating Evapotranspirometers
In the first part of the paper, the design, the working principle and the field installation of floating evapotranspirometer are described with the data logging system which delivers continuous...

Lysimeter Techniques and Application in India
Water is the most important resource and limiting factor for crop and industrial production in India, and agriculture is the largest consumer of water. The measurement of evapotranspiration...

Electronic Lysimetry for Hydrologic Studies
Purpose, definition and technology of lysimetry are in constant evolution. The flexure scale used here is a frictionless weighing machine, sturdy and precise. Electronics are necessary...

An Interactive Computer System for Estimating Monthly Evapotranspiration

An Assessment of Input Variables to the Penman-Monteith Equation Using Canopy Reflectance Measurements
Observing the form of the Penman-J.L. Monteith equation, it can be seen that several terms could be potentially estimated from remotely sensed data. These include: net radiation, canopy...

Evapotranspiration and Irrigation Water Requirements
This manual, Evapotranspiration and Irrigation Water Requirements (Manual No. 70), prepared by the Committee on Irrigation Water Requirements...

Drought in Tennessee: Implications on Irrigation System Capacity
Recent droughts in Tennessee have led to a study of the required irrigation system capacity for the state. Data from 1951 through 1988 were analyzed for probabilities of precipitation...

Cotton Response to High Frequency Irrigation
Three cotton production tests irrigated with the Low Energy Precision Application (LEPA) system were conducted from 1985 through 1987 on the Texas High Plains. Cotton treatments were irrigated...

Alfalfa Yield Response to Shallow Groundwater
Operating Criteria for the Newland Project assume that crops grown on bottomlands will use some shallow groundwater as partial fullfillment of evapotranspiration demand. Three years of...

AgriMet—ET Phones Home—(Adaptation of Satellite Telemetry for Crop Water Use Modeling in the Pacific Northwest)
The development of a regional automatic agricultural weather station network in the Pacific Northwest (AgriMet) is enabling the site-specific calculation of evapotranspiration (ET) through...
