Sarwoko Mangkoedihardjo : Leaf Area Based Transpiration Factor for Phytopumping of High Organic Matter Concentration
Prof. Dr. Ir. Sarwoko Mangkoedihardjo MScES
Transpiration factor was expres s ed in the ratio o f transpiration to leaf area (Tr/LA) in
combination with the ratio of evapotranspiration to evapora t ion (Et/E). Waterhyacinth was used to test
evapotranspiration of glucose and acetic acid. The result of Tr/LA was les s than 1 a n d Et/E was more
than 1 for both solutions containing high organic matter of more than 1000 mg/L. The two measures
would be valuable in phytotreatment of was tewater containing high organic matter concentration.
