Huang He River Basin Evaporation in Average Year

Bothe temperature and rainfall are important factors in the level of evaporation estimates. This is clear when looking at the river basin through the year. From Dec toe Feb. low evaporation estimates are recorded because of the low temperatures during these months. From March start to see an increase in evaporation from southern part of basin northwards until May. During June to Aug. evaporation is greatest coinciding with high temperatures and when there is the greatest input from rainfall. From September to Nov. se reduction in evaporation as temperatures fall and there is less rainfall input.
