Changes in New Zealand pan evaporation since the 1970s

Roderick, Michael; Farquhar, Graham


Several previous studies have reported declines in pan evaporation rate throughout the Northern Hemisphere of about 2-4 mm a-2 for various periods since the 1950s. A recent analysis of Australian pan evaporation reported a similar decline and raises the possibility that part of the phenomenon may be related to the greenhouse effect. To assess that possibility, one needs to know whether the decline in evaporative demand is happening in other parts of the Southern Hemisphere. As a first step to...[Show more]
