- evapo(ration) and transpiration. (American Heritage® Dictionary of the English Language, Fourth Edition)
“Aquatic weeds use more water in evapotranspiration than is lost by evaporation from the equivalent area of open water.”
“The researchers also used the satellite to estimate "evapotranspiration" - the evaporation of water from soil and the transpiration or use of water by plants - to learn more about how defoliation of tamarisk affects water use.”
“Outdoor irrigation accounts for up to 50 percent of water use in Florida, and up to 50 percent of the water applied to lawns is lost to what SFWMD calls "evapotranspiration" -- the sum of evaporation and plant transpiration from the earth's land surface to the air”
“Mackenzie Back aChange in river runoff is presented as the net change (mm/yr) in precipitation minus evapotranspiration, which is equivalent to total basin runoff (km3/yr) divided by the area (km2) of the drainage basin.”
“Transpiration is commonly measured in combination with evaporation, which is referred to as evapotranspiration (ET).”
“Rising air currents take the vapor up into the atmosphere, along with water from evapotranspiration, which is water transpired from plants and evaporated from the soil.”
“In a process called evapotranspiration, trees draw water from their roots and then”
“Two components of the water cycle are generally recognized: “blue water” is all water that is controlled by physical processes, including evaporation, and “green water” is water that is influenced by biological processes such as evapotranspiration by vegetation.”
“Within the cycle are various shortcuts, such as evapotranspiration from vegetation and direct evaporation from soil.”
“Resources Program, claims that "evapotranspiration" (i.e., an alleged loss of water into the atmosphere from evaporation and plant transpiration) could occur if irrigators were to do such a program.”
