Scaling of potential evapotranspiration with MODIS data reproduces flux observations and catchment water balance observations across Australia
We developed a new algorithm for estimating monthly actual evapotranspiration (AET) based on surface reflectance from MODIS-Terra and interpolated climate data. The algorithm uses monthly values of the Enhanced Vegetation Index (EVI) and the Global Vegetation Moisture Index (GVMI) derived from the MODIS nadir bidirectional reflectance distribution function - adjusted reflectance product (MOD43B4) to scale Priestley-Taylor potential evapotranspiration derived from the climate surfaces. The EVI...[Show more]
