    if it is humid air that the water is around, then it will not evaporate as readily as if it was dry air. The more moist or saturated the outside air is, the better the infiltration of water in the soil. Light intensity is the same idea, the more intense the lighting, the more Btu of energy wil go into the water, causing it to evaporate more readily. So the less intense the lighting, the better the infiltration.
