Actual to reference evapotranspiration (AET/RET) ratios for several land-cover types in east-central Florida

File AET2RET_Ratios.csv lists the AET to RET (actual to reference evapotranspiration) ratios, or AET/RET, used to calculate actual evapotranspiration for each land cover type. The daily measured AET data collected at the ET stations were used to calculate the monthly totals for each month of the year. These monthly AET totals were then used to calculate the average AET/RET monthly rat
