Evaporation reduction by monomolecular films the influence of water temperature and application rate on the effectiveness of cetyl alcohol

Authors: Hobbs, E.H.
Description: If evaporation from free-water surfaces could be reduced, more water would be available for useful purposes. Scientists in several countries Have been investigating the use of monomolecular films as evaporation retarding agents. Hexadecanol, also known as cetyl alcohol, appears to be the most promising material for this purpose. Evaporation is an endothermic pro cess. Thus, when evaporation is reduced the water temperature rises. Several authors, when reporting experiments concerned with evaporation control, have commented on this fact. Hayes (6) found that the surface waters of hexadecanol-treated ponds were from 2.6
