From the discussion of the hydrological cycle in hydrological or environmental geology textbooks, part of the precipitation that falls in a watershed becomes runoff to streams, part of it recharges the groundwater through infiltration, and part of it reenters the atmosphere by evapotranspiration (Fetter, 2001; Pipkin and Trent, 2003).
In arid climates, where evapotranspiration greatly exceeds precipitation, crop growth depends on irrigation.
Reference evapotranspiration (ETo) was computed by means of the simplified form of the FAO Penman Monteith Equation for use with 24-h time steps (Allen et al.
In the 1979-1988 water budget [ILLUSTRATION FOR FIGURE 1c OMITTED], which is representative of current conditions, evapotranspiration (541 mm/y) and streamflow (538 mm/y) each account for about 45% of precipitation (1180 mm/y).
Mapping evapotranspiration is important because it shows the amount of water used to irrigate crops - over 90 percent of all water consumed in Idaho.
Thus, this study aimed to evaluate the performance of evapotranspiration estimation models and the Kc in the different phenological stages of Moringa oleifera, under semiarid conditions, using low-quality, moderately saline water.
1], evapotranspiration >50 mm, and degree days >100[degrees]C days promoted the development of the lychee fruits.
Four irrigation regimens were applied in four replicated blocks to replace a range of crop evapotranspiration (ETc) fractions from fruit set to harvest.
Discharge of canals, evapotranspiration and precipitation data was collected from local government agencies.
Whereas, in Pre-monsoon seasons of 2012 and 2013 most of the sites in study area remained uncultivated due to capillary action of shallow saline groundwater, high evapotranspiration, shortage of canal water, tidal flooding and seawater intrusion.
Irrigation was scheduled based on the crop evapotranspiration (ETc) calculated as follows:
