Hydrology 18 16 14 12 10 8 6 4 2 200 400 600 800 1000 1200 atmospheric pressure (mbar) The figure above gives the specific humidity as a function of the atmospheric pressure. Use this figure to determine the total amount of water vapour expressed in mm liquid water. Use par. 1.3 from Shaw et al. and take an appropriate number of steps. Assume that from this calculated total amount of water vapour on average daily 10 % reaches a catchment as precipitation. Then calculate the annual evapotranspiration in mm for a catchment with a surface area of 46 000 km² and an average discharge of 1650 m³/s. Which assumption(s) were necessary to answer the previous question? What kind of climate are we dealing with (comparable to the Netherlands or differently)? Motivate your answer.
