AbstractThe Qinghai-Tibetan Plateau (QTP) is generally considered to be the water source region for its surrounding lowlands. However, there have only been a few studies that have focused on quantifying alpine meadow evapotranspiration (ET) and its partitioning, which are important components of water balance. This paper used the Shuttleworth-Wallace (S-W) model to quantify soil evaporation (E) and plant transpiration (T) in a degraded alpine meadow (34 degrees 24 ' N, 100 degrees 24 ' E, 3963 m a.s.l) located at the QTP from September 2006 to December 2008. The results showed that the annual ET estimated by the S-W model (ETSW) was 511.5 mm (2007) and 499.8 mm (2008), while E estimated by the model (E-SW) was 306.0 mm and 281.7 mm for 2007 and 2008, respectively, which was 49% and 29% higher than plant transpiration (T-SW). Model analysis showed that ET, E, and T were mainly dominated by net radiation (R-n), while leaf area index (LAI) and soil water content at a 5 cm depth (SWC5cm) were the most important factors influencing ET partitioning. The study results suggest that meadow degradation may increase water loss through increasing E, and reduce the water conservation capability of the alpine meadow ecosystem.
