A numerical model called PALMER is developed for simulating evapotranspiration rates from golf courses in arid lands. The model is based on a Penman equation that has been modified to include the potentially substantial advection contribution to the evapotranspiration level. The numerical model is proving to be a cost-effective tool for golf course managers in the Phoenix, Arizona area.
