Abstract:

Climate change leads to rise of temperature in the atmosphere, varying precipitation pattern, melting of glacier, sea level rise, and extreme weather events. The changes within the climate system influence the hydrologic cycle. Transpiration is one among the most parts of the hydrologic cycle; by this method, water is transferred from soil to the atmosphere through plants. Estimating crop evapotranspiration is necessary for providing crop water requirement and has special economic importance in efficient management of water resources in agriculture under current changing climate. Whereas transpiration rates in plants may increase with higher temperature, and other meteorological factors like wind speed, radiation, and humidness additionally have an effect on transpiration. Increasing humidity and better carbon dioxide concentrations tend to reduce transpiration and counteract the water loss at higher temperatures. Thus, the impact of elevated carbon dioxide concentration in the atmosphere may partly compensate the temperature effect on transpiration.
