Actual evapotranspiration (AET) monthly rates from ET stations in central Florida and corresponding simplified surface energy balance operational AET rates

Measured AET monthly rates in file AET_Monthly_Totals.csv were calculated at these ET monitoring stations in central and east-central Florida: Duda Farms, Blue Cypress, Reedy Lake, Orlando Urban, Disney Preserve, Lyonia Preserve. The monthly AET rates measured at these sites are compared side by side with the monthly AET rates calculated using the SSEBop method. The SSEBop AET rates w
