Field-Verified Irrigated Lands Dataset in the Milk River Basin of Montana and Alberta, 2021 and 2022
Field-verified irrigated lands data were collected for the Remote Sensing Component of the St. Mary-Milk Rivers Consumptive Use study to aid in the identification and delineation of agricultural fields that are irrigated in 2021 and 2022 in the Milk River basin. This field verification of irrigated fields will provide data that will be used to ground truth evapotranspiration estimates obtained in the Milk River basin using remote sensing methods. This work is part of a larger project aimed at developing a historical database representing monthly actual evapotranspiration (ETa) totals in the Milk River basin from 1985-present using remote sensing. This database will lay the foundation for the establishment of a remote sensing tool with which to objectively estimate ETa in the upper Milk River basin on a monthly interval using high spatial resolution (100 meter) satellite imagery.
