I understand that there is a gross evaporation and a net evaporation. I know energy (heat and air movement) creates gross evaporation. I have been told that condensation is always occurring and reducing that will increase the net evaporation. I am confused, will lowering the partial pressure of water in the air create a vapor pressure differential and will that create a gross evaporation? Is the only way to create gross evaporation by heat/energy or is there such a thing as vapor pressure differential that creates gross evaporation? I am thinking it only increases net evaporation. Thanks in advance, I just learned that air doesn't actually hold water and has got me thinking.
