Pan Evaporation Trends and the Terrestrial Water Balance. II. Energy Balance and Interpretation

Roderick, Michael; Hobbins, Michael; Farquhar, Graham


Declines in pan evaporation have been reported across the USA, former Soviet Union, India, China, Australia, New Zealand and Canada, among other places. The trend is large - approximately an order of magnitude larger than model-based estimates of top of the atmosphere radiative forcing. The pan evaporation trend also has a different sign (i.e. decline) from commonly held conceptions. These are a remarkably interesting set of observations. In the first article of this two-part series, we...[Show more]
