Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


Two simple surface temperature models for predicting evaporation are described with results of their use in pasture. First, a simple daily model when compared with a water balance method was found to be inadequate in accounting for seasonal differences in soil moisture and vegetation condition. Second, an hourly one-layer resistance model gave reasonable results when compared with Bowen ratio measurements.
