Short summary
The sigmoid-shaped complementary relationship (CR) for regional evaporation proposed by Han and Tian (2018, 2020) is reconsidered in terms of (1) its ability to give reasonable evaporation results from sites worldwide, (2) evidence for the three-state evaporation process it posits, (3) the validity of the proof provided by Han and Tian (2018), and (4) the relevance of model studies that seem to support it. Arguments for the sigmoid shape deserve to be taken seriously but remain unconvincing.
