- ... The fluxes of latent heat and CO₂ above an irrigated sugar beet (Beta vulgaris) field in the North Platte Valley of Nebraska were calculated by means of the energy balance. The advection of sensible heat to the field was large only when strong dry winds predominated or when the field acted as a leading edge of the irrigated river valley. Little evidence was found of midday depression in sugar beet ...
