However, total evaporation losses are lowered because crop transpiration is suppressed due to canopy-intercepted water and microclimate modification (Stambouli et al.
In the dry summer season (November-March), the total evaporation amount was several times larger than incident rainfall and average daily evaporation was ~0.5 mm/day.
When own-rooted Thompson Seedless was irrigated such that total evaporation plus transpiration was reduced approximately 25% from a maximum value, yield declined approximately 15%.
To get the total evaporation, evaporation at 36.7[degrees]C (98[degrees]F) was calculated by the Shah method described in the foregoing (largest of the values) and added to the measurements at other water temperatures.
Using equation 39 and with regard to the total evaporation obtained using pan evaporation during eight months, is measured about 1594 mm, Error of the measured and calculated values can be seen in the table below.
The evaporation of n-decane differs distinctively from the well-known case of water droplet evaporation [8], in which nonstationary evaporation only takes about 20 percent of total evaporation time.
For example ([TEXT NOT REPRODUCIBLE IN ASCII] 1965), the total evaporation losses of 1.2% at storing the parameters of its quality change in the following way: relative density increases by 0.002 g/[cm.sup.3], boiling point--by 3[degrees]C, boiling off point by 10% or 2[degrees]C, saturation pressure--by 20% and an octane number drops by 0.5 unit.
"One of the key technologies, without a doubt, is the low total evaporation of just three to four per cent, plus energy feed precisely matched to the boiling phase," the company said in a statement.
In all three years, total evaporation was approximately 75% of the winter precipitation.
We define total evaporation, [Alpha](t), as the ratio of the total amount of evaporation up to time t, E(t), based on the initial amount of the volatile components present, [E.sub.0], assuming that the density of the aqueous phase is unity, as follows;
