Trends in evaporative demand in Great Britain using high-2 resolution meteorological data 3 4 Emma L. Robinson1, Eleanor M. Blyth1, Douglas B. Clark1, Jon Finch1 and Alison 5 C.

This paper describes a comparison between two soil moisture prediction models. One is MORECS (Met Office Rainfall and Evaporation Calculation Scheme), the Met Office soil moisture model that is used by agriculture, flood modellers and weather forecasters to initialise their models. The other is MOSES (Met Office Surface Exchange Scheme), modified with a runoff generation module.

The British Meteorological Office introduced a new system for estimating areal evaporation and soil moisture deficit in April , known as MORECS (Meteoro­ logical Office Rainfall and Evaporation Calculation System). The system is designed as a service for the water industry and agriculture. It has great potential for short. Tracking the widely used MORECS (Met Office Rainfall and Evaporation Calculation System) data, this trend has continued. Since the start of August through to the middle of September, there has been a two and a half time increase in moisture loss over the same period last year.

MORECS is an acronym for the Meteorological Office rainfall and evaporation calculation system.

In its operational form it uses daily meteorological data to produce weekly estimates of evapotranspiration, soil moisture deficit (SMD) and hydrologically effective rainfall for each square of a 40 × 40 km grid superimposed upon Great Britain.

United Kingdom the most well-known method of estimating evaporation and its derivatives such as soil moisture deficit (SMD) is the Meteorological Office Rainfall and Evaporation Calculation System (MORECS) which is based on the Penman-Monteith equation. Direct measurements of evaporation have become less common in recent years.

In the Met Office Rainfall and Evaporation Calculation System (MORECS) implementation (Hough and Jones ), this term varies on a monthly basis according to seasonal crop growth. Here we present a method to estimate Penman–Monteith PE from vegetated surfaces using output from a regional climate model with an embedded land surface scheme.

In the United Kingdom, an operational service to predict soil moisture deficit has been provided by the Met Office Rainfall and Evaporation Calculation System (MORECS) since (Hough and Palmer, ; Hough and Jones, ).
