The Role of Plants in Evaporation
-The system is assumed to be in equilibrium. This is not always the case.
stomatal resistance= resistance that stomata cause
-aerodynamic resistance increases when windspeeds are low
-Air movement, vertical mixing increases the efficiency of evaporation. Air movement just
enhances evaporation, it doesn’t cause it.
-Total evaporation peaks at noon, so we have moist soils in the morning and lower soils later on
in the day.
