    Description

    Evapotranspiration (ET) is the largest watershed water balance component only next to precipitation in the United States. ET is closely coupled with ecosystem carbon and energy fluxes, affects flooding or drought magnitude, and is also a good predictor for biodiversity at a regional scale.Thus, accurately estimating ET is of paramount importance to quantify the effects of land use change and climate change on watershed ecosystem services in water supply, water resources management, carbon sequestration, and biodiversity conservation.
