|Title:||Evaporation in a Coastal Subarctic Wetland During the Growing Season|
|Advisor:||Rouse, W. R.|
|Abstract:||<p> Energy balance components were measured over a coastal subarctic wetland in northwestern James Bay during the growing season. The Penman-Monteith combination model was used to determine surface and atmospheric controls on evaporation. The Priestley-Taylor combination model was used to calculate an evaporability parameter, a. Combining these two models resulted in determining the sensitivity of a to surface and atmospheric controls. </p> <p> Canopy, aerodynamic, and climatological resistances were influenced by onshore or offshore wind directions. Canopy resistance was dominant and showed a strong seasonal trend a averaged 0.78 and was influenced by wind direction a is most sensitive to canopy resistance, followed by vapour pressure deficit, net available energy, and aerodynamic resistance. </p>|
