Evapotranspiration (evapo)

Hi

I do not know how many of you are using meteobridge.
Generally being very happy with meteobridge (also in connection to Meteotemplate) there is one thing I hope that it will be implemented soon, the evapotranspiration.

Although being visible on my Davis Screen, evapo still does not work in Meteobridge in my opinion. Now, that we have the rain balance available (implemented within the plugin "precipitation analysis") it is even more interesting to have "evapo" also visible on an hourly/daily basis. Although evapo might be difficult to interprete or not being very precise (also after discussions with Jachym), it would be nonetheless be interesting to have the evolution of evapo as an additional consideration to the rain balance.
The last time I asked Boris (meteobridge) he answered he had not time to implement it so far.

Just want to hear your opinion on that .

Marc

I am still of the opinion that even the best estimate we have right now (the FAO recommended Penman-Monteith estimation) is far from realistic. Unless you have a lysimeter at home...
