A lysimeter is a metal cylinder open at the top and closed at the bottom. It is used to measure evapotranspiration in a column of soil on which natural vegetation or agricultural crops are growing. In addition to the evapotranspiration, parameters such as the amount of seepage or interactions and mass transfer between the soil, vegetation and atmosphere can be analyzed.
