Description An evaporating surface made from a dark, porous carborundum stone, 6-in. (152.4-rnrn) in diameter, wetted by capillary rise from a plastic reservoir and shielded from rainfall by a clear plastic cover was designed for rainy areas. Class A pan evaporation at five different sites was 0.6 the water loss from corresponding evaporimeters. Water use by Californiagrass was 1.1 pan evaporation and 0.66 the water loss from the evaporimeter. Evaporation, rainfall, and pertinent meteorological factors...
