In describing evaporation rate, soil structure and moisture were taken into acount as much as possible. Soil moisture prediction was carried out using Sellers' method. Hydraulic properties were determined using both known values for the given type of soil and the empirical equations of Clapp and Hornberger. Soil surface temperature prediction were made using the "force-restore' method. Sensible and latent heat fluxes were determined using a resistance representation taking into consideration atmospheric stability. -from Authors
