Global 5 km resolution estimates of secondary evaporation including irrigation through satellite data assimilation

Van Dijk, Albert; Schellekens, J.; Yebra, Marta; Beck, Hylke E.; Renzullo, Luigi; Weerts, A. H.; Donchyts, Gennadii


A portion of globally generated surface and groundwater resources evaporates from wetlands, waterbodies and irrigated areas. This secondary evaporation of blue water directly affects the remaining water resources available for ecosystems and human use. At the global scale, a lack of detailed water balance studies and direct observations limits our understanding of the magnitude and spatial and temporal distribution of secondary evaporation. Here, we propose a methodology to assimilate...[Show more]
