This chapter summarises the practical methods available to estimate evaporation, E. It describes the background of methods based on soil physical, micrometeorological and plant physiological concepts. The most appropriate method will mainly depend on required spatial and temporal scales of E, accuracy needed, and the available resources (financial and manpower). These issues are taken into account during the discussion.
