Description Near O'ahu the annual oceanic evaporation is 65 in. (1651 mm) and the rainfall is 18 in. (457.2 mm), giving a 47-in. (1 193.8-mm) deficit. In 1981, evaporation over central O'ahu was 27 in. (685.8 mm) and rainfall was 197 in. (5 003.8 mm), for a 170-in. (4 318-mm) surplus. The pattern of evaporation over an island differs from that over the open ocean, just as the pattern of rainfall and cloudiness is changed by island topography. Evaporation measurements that were begun in 1980 at five...
