  • Estimating evapotranspiration using the complementary relationship and the Budyko framework

    Several models have been developed to estimate evapotranspiration. Among those, the complementary relationship has been the subject of many recent studies because it relies on meteorological data only. Recently, the modified Granger and Gray (GG) model showed its applicability across 34 diverse global sites. While the modified GG model showed better performances compared to the recently ...

  • Differential intra-specific stemflow funnelling efficiencies of Caragana korshinskii within arid desert ecosystems

    Stemflow is known as a highly localized point input of rainwater and solutes around tree/shrub bases where roots are concentrated, thus having considerable effects on hydrology and biogeochemistry of vegetated ecosystems. Stemflow shows a pronounced inter-specific variation due to morphological differences among species, while the intra-specific variation of stemflow has been poorly explored. ...

  • Fruits and Vegetables Hot Air Drying Processes Research

    Hot air drying is the conventional drying method, and it transfers heat from the drying medium to the material based on the heat conduction effect, then this results in two diffusion after the material absorbs heat: the external diffusion ( the moisture from the material surface to the drying medium ) and the internal diffusion ( the moisture from material interior to the material surface ), and ...

  • Ethylene Control in the distribution Chain of non-Climateric Fresh Produce

    A scientific study carried out in Australia by the prestigious professor of post-harvest, Dr R.B.H. Wills, has concluded that most non-climacteric fresh produce is kept in the distribution chain in atmospheres with an ethylene level that causes losses of between 10% and 30% of their potential post-harvest life. During the study more than 700 measurements were made of the ethylene level ...

  • Anisotropic flow resistance theory and experimental verification on partially submerged crop vegetation

    The presence of orderly arranged rows and spacing of crop vegetation increases the anisotropy of the Earth's surface, and affects the resistance of the surface to overland flow. However, few studies have addressed how the orderly arrangement of crop vegetation affects the resistance of the surface to overland flow. In the present study, we consider that flow resistance has anisotropic ...

  • Examination of a coupled supply- and demand-induced stress function for root water uptake modeling

    Vegetation water use is closely related to its biophysical functioning and is often under stress from various environmental factors. However, commonly used root water uptake models only consider the stress from root zone moisture availability. There is a need to incorporate the stress from both the above-ground factors and root zone water condition. In this study, a newly developed coupled ...
