The aerodynamics of pan evaporation
In response to worldwide observations reporting a decline in pan evaporation over the last 30-50 years, we developed an instrumented US Class A pan that replicated an operational pan at Canberra Airport in Australia. The aim of the experimental facility was to investigate the physics of pan evaporation under non-steady state conditions. By monitoring the water level at 5-min intervals we were able to calculate the evaporation rate and thereby determine the short-term mass balance of the pan....[Show more]
