A fast method to measure the evaporation rate
« on: December 08, 2020, 10:30:35 AM »
The paper presents a unique way to quickly measure the evaporation rate of water. The time duration of the measurement varied between 2.5 and 6 min; this temporal resolution opens new opportunities in the area of plant sciences. The effect of varying atmospheric conditions, including wind speed and Sun-like radiation, were also studied. They also proposed a reduced-order mathematical model for evaporation, whose results agreed reasonably well with those measured in the experiments. The device is easy-to-use, simple to construct, and portable. Considering these benefits, the proposed device can become an integral part of the weather stations and will improve the analysis of the real-time energy distribution at the earth’s surface.
