Abstract

The San Joaquin-Sacramento river delta plays a critical role in California water issues, but little information about potential evapotranspiration (ET) in the region is available for water resources planning and development. Simple equations, based on long-term weather data from Stockton and Lodi, have been developed for estimating monthly ET in the Delta. These equations can provide ET data until reliable weather stations are installed.
