(engineering)
Lowering the temperature of a large mass of liquid by utilizing the latent heat of vaporization of a portion of the liquid.
Cooling air by evaporating water into it.

evaporative cooling

Cooling accomplished by evaporating water (usually as a fine spray) in air; as a result, the dry-bulb temperature decreases and the humidity increases; this principle is used in cooling towers and in the cooling of buildings in hot, arid climates.
