Formatted Abstract/Summary
...In arid areas, where water storages are essential for agricultural practices, small reservoirs can represent a significant surface area and have a substantial monetary value. Accurate quantification of evaporation from small water storage reservoirs while presenting a significant research challenge is essential for effective water resource management in water scarce regions, in particular those where rapid growth in demand for water exceeds natural supply. In order to ascertain suitable methods for direct measurements of evaporation, two of the most scientifically advanced evaporation measurement techniques, eddy covariance and scintillometry, have been applied to a small reservoir in South-East Queensland, Australia...
