Commercial cultivation of microalgae in open ponds can be strongly limited by evaporation. This is particularly the case in highly evaporative areas where production plants are likely to be located. We present a mathematical model to calculate native solute and exogenous nutrient concentrations as affected by net evaporation or net precipitation. The model takes into account the periodic compensatory addition of new feedstock water and/or removal of rain-originated excess water and the eventual...[Show more]
