Short summary
The 3rd paper in a series dealing with evaporation over indigenous vegetation in an area of South Africa experiencing severe water challenges. The area is a World Heritage site and an important conservation area in which our understanding of the water balance plays a crucial role in system management. We provide the fist estimates of total evaporation from a subtropical peat swamp forest, investigate measurement techniques and provide modelling solutions to estimate long-term evaporation.
