Evapotranspiration within Blue Cypress Marsh, Indian River County, Florida, 2018 to 2020

September 14, 2021

The dataset includes a table in comma delimited format of daily evapotranspiration (ET) from 6/14/2018 to 12/31/2020 from an ET station within the Blue Cypress Marsh Conservation Area, within Indian River County, Florida. Evapotranspiration was estimated using eddy-covariance methods and missing records were gap-filled with a version of the Turc equation (Trajkovic and Kolakovic, 2009) that was regressed against observed values of eddy-covariance ET. The Turc equation performed exceptionally well (r-squared value of 0.94) for reproducing observed daily ET rates. Daily ET values estimated with the Turc equation are identified by a column with a "T" value indicator. Data processing methods were similar to methods outlined by Shoemaker and others (2011). Ancillary data includes net radiation, relative humidity, air temperature, soil temperature, land surface temperature, water depth above land surface (+) or depth to water below land surface (-). The site location is 27°41'46", -80°42'43". Released data include evapotranspiration (ET, in millimeters per day), net radiation (Rn, in watts per square meter), minimum and maximum daily relative humidity and air temperature (RH_max, RH_min in percent; AT_max, AT_min in degrees Celsius), mean daily air temperature (AT_average, in degrees Celsius), water distance above (+) and below (-) land surface (WD, in meters), land surface temperature (Tls, in degrees Celsius), soil temperature (Ts, in degrees Celsius), and evapotranspiration (ET, in millimeters per day). These data provide updates to prior releases of evapotranspiration data from this station extending back to June 1, 1995.
