Loss of water from the soil by evaporation through topsoil and vegetation cover (evapotranspiration) is directly measurable using lysimeters. The aim of the thesis is to determine the degree of influence of the soil texture class on the daily and seasonal course of the actual evapotranspiration. The data base for the analysis will consist of measurements in lysimeters with a time step of one hour. The structure of the measured parameters will include all components of the water regime of the aeration zone of the investigated soils and meteorological elements. The effect of selected soil texture classes will be investigated under the same meteorological conditions.
