- ... The temperature of a naturally exposed, bare wet soil surface was measured with a narrow bandpass infrared radiation thermometer. Corrections were made for actual sky radiance and for surface emittance, the latter also determined in the field. When used to calculate evaporation rates with a Dalton-type equation containing a log-law wind function (drag coefficient × windspeed), excellent agreement ...
