Blaney-Morin-Nigeria (BMN) Evapotranspiration Model (A Technical Note)

  • FI Idike

Abstract

Duru [1] presented a modified form of the Blaney-Morin potential evapotranspiration equation christened Blaney-Morin- Nigeria (BMN) Evapotranspiration (ET) model for use in Nigeria. In this work, Duru recognize the very wide variability of relative humidity in Nigeria and consequently the very important role this parameter is bound to play in the evapotranspiration process in this geographical region (Nigeria). Thus he (Duru) correctly surmised that any Et model that would reasonably estimate Potential evapotranspiration (PET) in Nigeria must involve humidity term as a crucial parameter.
