Estimation of Groundwater Evapotranspiration Using Diurnal Groundwater Level Fluctuations under Three Vegetation Covers at the Hinterland of the Badain Jaran Desert

Accurate estimation of groundwater evapotranspiration (ETG) is the key for regional water budget balance and ecosystem restoration research in hyper-arid regions. Methods that use diurnal groundwater

Estimation of evapotranspiration using diurnal groundwater level fluctuations: Comparison of different approaches with groundwater lysimeter data

In wetlands or riparian areas, water withdrawal by plants with access to groundwater or the capillary fringe often causes diurnal groundwater fluctuations. Various approaches use the characteristics

A statistical approach to estimating evapotranspiration from diurnal groundwater level fluctuations

Over the last few decades, automatic sensors that record groundwater levels at high‐frequency intervals have become widely used in groundwater monitoring practice. These sensors provide large amounts

The influence of diurnal snowmelt and transpiration on hillslope throughflow and stream response

Abstract. During spring, daily stream flow and groundwater dynamics in forested subalpine catchments are to a large extent controlled by hydrological processes that respond to the day–night energy

Determination of diurnal water level fluctuations in headwaters

The aim of this paper is to study diurnal fluctuations of the water level in streams draining headwaters and to identify the controlling factors. The fieldwork was carried out in the Gryzynka River

Quantification of groundwater recharge and evapotranspiration along a semi-arid wetland transect using diurnal water table fluctuations

Groundwater is a vital water resource in arid and semi-arid areas. Diurnal groundwater table fluctuations are widely used to quantify rainfall recharge and groundwater evapotranspiration (ETg). To


Due to the anomalous changes in the groundwater regime over the past 5 years, the question arose about the adequacy and effectiveness of existing methods for predicting their level. The data of

The pulse of a montane ecosystem: coupled daily cycles in solar flux, snowmelt, transpiration, groundwater, and streamflow at Sagehen and Independence Creeks, Sierra Nevada, USA

Water levels in streams and aquifers often exhibit daily cycles during rainless periods, reflecting diurnal extraction of shallow groundwater by evapotranspiration (ET) and, during snowmelt, diurnal



A field investigation of phreatophyte-induced fluctuations in the water table

Hydrographs from shallow wells in vegetated riparian zones frequently display a distinctive pattern of diurnal water table fluctuations produced by variations in plant water use. A multisite

Evidence of Seasonal Changes in Evapotranspiration in Eastern U.S. Hydrological Records

Abstract Hydrologic records provide some of the most widespread, long-term data available that can be expected to contain signals of climate variation over time. Yet such data have not been used to

A method for estimating subdaily evapotranspiration of shallow groundwater using diurnal water table fluctuations

Diurnal water table fluctuations are a common feature of well hydrographs recorded in wetlands, riparian areas, and similar environments where shallow groundwater supports phreatophytic vegetation.

Seasonal and Spatial Patterns in Diurnal Cycles in Streamflow in the Western United States

The diurnal cycle in streamflow constitutes a significant part of the variability in many rivers in the western United States and can be used to understand some of the dominant processes affecting

Diurnal fluctuations of water tables induced by atmospheric pressure changes

Seasonal estimates of riparian evapotranspiration using remote and in situ measurements.
