ABSTRACT THE Blaney-Criddle formula for estimating evapotranspiration is one of the most popular in the West and is the method generally used in court cases transfer-ring water rights from agricultural to municipal usages.

This paper presents a calibra-tion of the Blaney-Criddle formula based on measure-ments of evapotranspiration rates directly from urban lawns.
