Description :
In this paper, a derivation based approach has been used to quantitatively assess the contribution rate of climate factors to the observed pan evaporation paradox across the Tibetan Plateau. The results showed that a decrease in wind speed was the dominant factor for the decreasing pan evaporation, followed by an increasing vapor pressure and decreasing solar radiation, all of which offset the effect of increasing temperature across the Tibetan Plateau.
