Evapotranspiration and Carbon Flux

Evapotranspiration is the rate of transport of water vapor from the earth’s surface into the atmosphere. Evapotranspiration can be computed as reference, potential, or actual evapotranspiration.   Reference evapotranspiration is that from a grass surface that is well-watered.  Potential evapotranspiration is that from a surface that has unlimited water (such as a lake).

Actual Evapotranspiration for Florida

Evapotranspiration is a large component of the Florida water budget – generally second only to rainfall, but exceeding rainfall and all other components during droughts. The prominence of evapotranspiration highlights the need to accurately quantify this hydrologic component in quantitative analyses of watershed hydrology. Spatio-temporal estimates of evapotranspiration throughout Florida are...

Reference and Potential Evapotranspiration

Evapotranspiration can be computed as reference, potential, or actual evapotranspiration. Reference evapotranspiration is that from a grass surface that is well-watered. Potential evapotranspiration is that from a surface that has unlimited water (such as a lake). Reference and potential evapotranspiration are computed at a 2-kilometer spatial resolution and daily timestep for the state of Florida...
