The importance of measuring evaporation

We can see rain and snow, but we can’t see the biggest cause of water loss in almost every area on earth: evaporation. Reliable figures are lacking on this invisible water loss largely because evaporation is so difficult to measure.

Knowledge institutes, businesses (including Eijkelkamp Soil & Water) and the government have collaborated to develop the Eijkelkamp Smart Lysimeter. Evaporation figures obtained using the Eijkelkamp Smart Lysimeter are of great importance in water management.
