# Sensitivity analysis of the evaporation module of the E-DiGOR model

aerodynamic resistance (s m–1), λ is the latent heat of vaporisation (MJ kg–1), γ is the psychrometric constant (kPa °C–1), and 86.4 is the factor for conversion from kJ s–1 to MJ day–1.

The formulas calculating the relative sensitivity coefficients of the variables in Equation (1) are as follows:

a) Sd =

Actual evaporation rates were computed using Aydın’s equation (Aydın et al. 2008):

# Ea =

which actual evaporation starts to drop below potential one, |ψad| is the absolute values of soil water potential at air-dryness, and |ψ| is the absolute values of soil water potential. The values of all ψ are in centimetres of water.

The sensitivity coefficients based on the partial derivatives for Equation (2) are as follows:
