    Like the title says........... I'm looking for an app to calculate evaporation rates (in gallons and/or barrels a day) for fresh water in ponds and small lakes.


    Something that I can punch in.......

    Surface area (Sq. ft. and/or Acers)
    Ambient temp.
    Water temp.
    Humidity
    Wind speed
    and any other parameters needed.

    Does anything like this exist?

    Not sure if there's an app for that. But if I wanted to know about this, I'd look for a book by Thomas G Glover called Pocket Reference. It usually sells for around $10. I have that book. I'll look to see if it has that info & post back what I find

    Elevation, and purity of the water are a factor..many many variables to consider..
    I don't think an app like that exists either..

    Actually, I've owed a copy of Pocket Reference for many years. Great resource, but I didn't find an evaporation table in it.
    Of course I may have missed it. That small print is hell on these old eyes :)
    There are formulas out there to figure evaporation rates but I really need something to calculate on the fly.
    This would be very useful in my line of work.

    Thanks for the link. I've used that one in the past. I wish they had a standard version of it.

    Try the app "convert everything". See if that has what you're looking for.
