If you're planning to store water for months at a time, keep the water free of debris and as closed off as possible to reduce evaporation loss.
The main conclusion from the workshop was the recognition of the increased importance of reservoir evaporation loss and the need to bring new ideas and state-of-the-art practices for the estimation of reservoir evaporation into operational use in the United States for modern water resource managers.
Her design speeds up aging and minimizes evaporation loss or 'angel share,' contributing to the unique and fresh yet full-bodied flavor of Julius James.

Ignoring the minor distinction of the other properties between No.7 and No.8 lubricants, different base stocks may influence the evaporation loss. Despite the evident difference of evaporation losses, the ignition delay time of No.7 and No.8 is very close, as shown in Fig.6.
When overhead irrigation occurs over a crop canopy, an inevitable percentage of the applied water captured by the canopy and stored in the uppermost soil surface level is subject to evaporation loss and does not become part of the crop's direct transpiration stream (Philip 1966).
This type of installation allows for the most cost-efficient delivery of nitrogen by the supplier and potentially the lowest evaporation loss of cryogen to the freezers because of the low-heat transfer properties of vacuum-insulated piping systems.
This is accomplished by multiplying the evaporation loss term by kronecker-delta:
