Stochastic models are developed to simulate annual, monthly and daily evaporation data for Australia. For annual and monthly synthesis, the evaporation values are generated independently and dependently of rainfall; on the other hand, generation of daily evaporation is based on the knowledge of occurrence of daily rainfall. Data from nine Australian stations are used to illustrate applications of the models.
