Abstract/Summary The project is part of a larger research program under the Urban Water Security Research Alliance (UWSRA) which aims to determine the potential for cost effectively reducing evaporative losses from water storages in South East Queensland (SEQ). An initial desktop analysis has identified techniques (e.g. surface films, floating covers) which may be employed to reduce evaporation under conditions experienced in SEQ and the next step in the process is to assess some of these products under field conditions. Central to this testing will be the ability to accurately determine evaporation from an open water body and to assess potential water quality impacts. The project aims to test available techniques to measure evaporation from water storages and to assess the suitability of each for determining evaporation changes as the result of application of evaporation reducing technologies. This presentation will discuss the experimental design to be implemented for this project.
