Response to: Shokri, N. (2018), Comment on “Analytical estimation show low depth‐independent water loss due to vapor flux from deep aquifers by John S. Selker [2017]”

John Selker

Key Points

  • Since steady‐state conditions for deep evaporation processes would take millions of years, this assumption is inappropriate on earth
  • Pedotransfer functions were developed for description of water movement in the m/yr range, and are not suited to 0.01mm/yr fluxes found here
  • A simple pseudo‐steady solution extending the Gardner (1958) approach to evaporation provides time‐scales for deep evaporation.
