Michele Bottazzi Ph.D. Thesis

Finally Michele Bottazzi finished his Ph.D. dissertation and he is going towards graduation. The Thesis has some valuable things: an overview on how to estimate evaporation and transpiration which, I think, is easy to read and plane. 

He discusses also the extension of the theory to cover canopies and catchments and provide an implementation of the model called  Prospero. In the final chapter he applies the model to a point case and to a catchment case. In both there are some interesting results to analyze.

You can access the thesis by clicking on the image above.  The slides of his defense are here. Finally below, please find the video of his defense.

Here below the discussion that followed:

If you are interested in understanding a little more about transpiration from a hydrological point of view, this is the right place to start.
