Satellite and gridded meteorological data can be used to estimate evaporation (E) from land surfaces using simple diagnostic models. Two satellite datasets indicate a positive trend (first time derivative) in global available energy from 1983 to 2006, suggesting that positive trends in evaporation may occur in "wet" regions where energy supply limits evaporation. However, decadal trends in evaporation estimated from water balances of 110 wet catchments (Ē wb) do not match trends in evaporation...[Show more]
