Abstract

An experimental study, using potted plants was, conducted to estimate the oasis effects of urban areas. The study for 28 days shows that evaporation rate of an isolated plant is one-and-half times larger than that of plant placed in the center of a dense canopy. The experiment was accompanied by noting the evaporation rate of 55 potted plants, arranged at an interval of 3.6 meters. It was observed that evaporation rate increased with an decrease in the vegetation density.
