Note: Any peaks seen on the PE graph are due to recent rainfalls having not yet percolated through the soil. This method is not good for daily measurements, but good results are obtained over 3 days (allowing time for percolation) and on a monthly basis. The lysimeter also measures dew and depositions of frost, and is a better raingauge than one with a rim at 30 cm high. In winter, when evaporation from the ground is low, negative values are sometimes seen and indicate an accumulation of dew and frost, and more rain than measured by a standard raingauge. In summer, when evaporation is high and rainfall less, the lysimeter still measures dew and more rain than the standard gauge, but the effect is less noticeable. The daily graph is show here for it's interest and you can read more about this 'classic' method of measuring evaporation here.
