Evaluation of optical remote sensing to estimate actual evapotranspiration and canopy conductance

Yebra, Marta; Van Dijk, Albert; Leuning, Ray; Huete, Alfredo; Guerschman , Juan Pablo


We compared estimates of actual evapotranspiration (ET) produced with six different vegetation measures derived from the MODerate resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) and three contrasting estimation approaches using measurements from eddy covariance flux towers at 16 FLUXNET sites located over six different land cover types. The aim was to assess optimal approaches in using optical remote sensing to estimate ET. The first two approaches directly regressed various MODIS vegetation...[Show more]
