Reducing reservoir evaporation. Application of surface films cuts losses



Reducing reservoir evaporation. Application of surface films cuts losses



Agric. Engng, St. Joseph, Mich, 42: 5, 240-3. bibl. 6



When a film of hexadecanol was maintained, by continuous (24 hr/day) application of the powder in slurry form for 66 days, evaporation was reduced by 25%. The water temperature was increased by 5.4 degrees F at the surface and by 3 degrees F at a depth of 5 ft when compared with a non-treated reservoir. Evaporation was reduced by only 6% when the film was applied for 12 hr/day.
