EVAPOTRANSPIRATION (ET)

What
is
Evapotranspiration

14
.... Cont EVAPOTRANSPIRATION (ET)

## Process sum of evaporation from the

earth's land surface & transpiration
from plant to atmosphere.
Used for hydrologic modelling & 2 concepts
applied :-

Evaporation

Evaporation
Actual (ETa)
15
Potential Evapotranspiration (ETp ) - the
water loss which will occur if at no time
there is a deficiency of water in the soil for
the use of vegetation (have adequate water
in the soil profile).

## Actual Evapotranspiration (ETa ) - is said

to equal potential evapotranspiration when
there is ample water
