|Title:||Using soil surface temperature to assess soil evaporation in a drip irrigated vineyard||Contributor(s):||Kerridge, Belinda L (author); Hornbuckle, John (author); Christen, Evan W (author); Faulkner, Richard D (author)||Publication Date:||2013||DOI:||10.1016/j.agwat.2012.07.001||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/11910||Abstract:||Evaporation from the soil is an important part of the water balance of a crop, when considering water use efficiency. In this paper, a non-intensive method is tested to estimate relative soil evaporation, which is based upon a linear function of soil surface temperature change between a saturated and drying soil. The relative evaporation (RE) method of Ben-Asher et al. (1983) was calibrated using microlysimeters and thermal imaging. Soil surface temperature in a drip irrigated vineyard was then collected using infrared temperature sensors mounted on a quad bike, on several days of the 2009-2010 season. Soil surface temperature in the vineyard ranged from 4.6 °C to 65.5 °C undervine and 6.8 °C to 75.6 °C in the middle of the row. The difference between daily minima and maxima of soil surface temperature ranged from 20.2 °C to 59.7 °C in the inter-row and 13.6 °C to 36.4 °C undervine. Relative evaporation averaged 54% of evaporation from a saturated soil in the inter-row and 97% undervine. Based upon the calculation of RE, the average daily amount of soil evaporation undervine was between 0.64 mm and 1.83 mm, and between 0.69 mm and 2.52 mm inter-row. The soil evaporation undervine and inter-row both exhibited spatial variability across the vineyard, however the undervine area had less spatial variability compared to the inter-row area.||Publication Type:||Journal Article||Source of Publication:||Agricultural Water Management, v.116, p. 128-141||Publisher:||Elsevier BV||Place of Publication:||The Netherlands||ISSN:||1873-2283
