Radiation and energy flux characteristics of tea canopies in Kenya

Auteur :
KAIRU, E. N.

Description :
This paper discusses the results of an experiment whereby all the major radiation and energy fluxes were measured/estimated for a mature tea canopy at Kericho, Kenya. The fluxes include incoming short-wave radiation, terrestrial radiation, latent heat flux and the sensible heat fluxes between the canopy and the air and that into and out of the soil. The largest proportion of net radiation was consumed by the latent heat flux. Advection was found to be minimal.
