Abstract:

Arnold Air Force Base AFB has prepared an Environmental Assessment EA that evaluates the potential environmental and socioeconomic impacts associated with construction of an Evapotranspiration Tower. Arnold Engineering Development Center AEDC and the US Geological Survey USGS Water Resource Division are collaborating on a 4-year project to support the Bases ecosystem management efforts by increasing knowledge of the relationships among vegetation, climate, soils, and water balance. The project requires quantification of . evapotranspiration ET demand from the landvegetation system to calibrate water budget models relating hydrologic inputs and outputs to wetland and stream function.
