Abstract

•Saturated crowns of individual sparse trees behave as wet bulbs.•Evaporation from fully ventilated canopies is well estimated by the wet bulb approach.•When applicable, this approach may be preferable to the Penman–Monteith model.•Fully ventilated canopy conditions do not depend solely on crown cover fraction.•Proper evaluation of wet canopy evaporation is critical to Gash’s interception model.
