Gevgelija (MK B)
Purpose of this facility to measure soil evaporation
Lysimeter type NON-WEIGHABLE GRAVITATION LYSIMETER (GARNIER)
Operating since 1981
Size classification small
Exact size 0.55 x 0.60 m
Building material of vesse Steel
Seepage water determination Gravimetric
Vegetation and cultivation Fallow/uncultivated
Remarks 237 - constant for diameter (0.55 m) of Garnier lysimeters
Position 4109' N, 2230' E
Altitude above sea level in m 54
Mean annual temperature in C 14.6
Topographic feature Plain
Meteorological parameters Temperature, precipitation, relative humidity, atmospheric pressure, global radiation
Evaporation determination (formula) Evaporation (ml) = precipitation (ml) + water delivery (300 ml) - infiltration water
Water balance determination (formula) Total water (ml) = water delivery (300 ml) + precipitation (ml)
Other analyses or formulas used evaporation(mm) = evaporation (ml)/237
Year of survey 2004
