Evapotranspiration--the combination of evaporation and transpiration, or plant water use--is a process that can be difficult to assess, but its role in the hydrologic cycle provides important information about water supplies, ecosystem productivity, and climatic changes. In April, scientists, natural resource managers, and other experts from around the world gathered in Raleigh, NC, to share knowledge and best practices during an international symposium, "Evapotranspiration: Challenges in Measurement and Modeling from the Leaf to the Landscape Scale and Beyond." Eastern Threat Center research hydrologist Ge Sun, a co-chair of the symposium's technical committee, presented research findings and led a tour of a Center research site.
