Abstract

Evaporation transpiration is one of the most important results in the water balance equation for any natural area or water body, and it is also a critical component of the hydrological cycle. The relationship between temperature and transpiration was obtained using the Thornthwaite method in three stations along with Babylon Governorate. The data for the three meteorological stations were taken for 10 years. The value of climate change was obtained within the study area, including temperature, evaporation, humidity, and rainfall. The value of potential evapotranspiration was calculated by the Thornthwaite method, and the highest value was obtained in July (421.9), and the lowest value in January (3.66). Also, the increase in water was calculated for a study area. It appeared that the increase in evapotranspiration and decrease was in direct relationship with the temperature intensity of the study area.
