Water stock in Mediterranean Temporary ponds results from the hydorological balance between direct or indirect rainwater supply (inflow) and losses in the atmosphere, overflow, infiltration (outflow). Losses into the atmosphere are due either to evapotranspiration, which includes evaporation from open water, soil and canopy dampened by the rain and plant transpiration. Our research was aimed to relate the hydrological balance evaluated at landscape scale with the presence and size of over 100 ponds using historical series of meteorological data and satellite images freely available online. The study area is located in Sardinia, on a 44 km2 basaltic plateau, 550 m a.s.l, named Giara di Gesturi.
