A mathematical model of pan evaporation under steady state conditions

Lim, Wee Ho; Roderick, Michael L.; Farquhar, Graham D.


In the context of changing climate, global pan evaporation records have shown a spatially-averaged trend of ∼−2 to ∼−3 mm a⁻²over the past 30–50 years. This global phenomenon has motivated the development of the “PenPan” model (Rotstayn et al., 2006). However, the original PenPan model has yet to receive an independent experimental evaluation. Hence, we constructed an instrumented US Class A pan at Canberra Airport (Australia) and monitored it over a three-year period (2007–2010) to uncover the...[Show more]
