The AA. report on recent progress in using standard meteorology data to estimate potential, reference and actual evaporation from terrestrial landscapes as well as evaporation from lakes and reservoirs. They also address recent enhancements to standard methodologies through use of remote sensing and data-driven procedures. They highlight that remote sensing offers significant potential for mapping spatial variations in evaporation. There has been limited progress in estimating actual evaporation via the complementary relationship, whereas applications of the Penman-Monteith and related equations incorporating actual surface resistance term(s) have dominated the recent literature
