Note: Any peaks seen on the PE graph are due to recent rainfalls having not yet percolated through the soil. This method is not good for daily measurements, but good results are obtained over 3 days (allowing time for percolation) and on a monthly basis. The daily graph is show here for it's interest and you can read more about this 'classic' method of measuring evaporation here
