Volga River Basin Evaporation in Average Year

In the Volga river basin during spring (from April onwards) an increase in evaporation estimates is shown, owing to the increase in temperatures driving evaporation and the availability of water from melting ice and snow. From August onwards a decrease in evaporation is estimated because of dryer conditions and the change to cooler temperatures through autumn to winter explains the decrease in evaporation.
