Evaluating methods of estimating global radiation and vapor pressure deficit using a dense network of automatic weather stations in coastal Brazil.
A dense network of automatic weather stations (AWS) in eastern Brazil provided the opportunity to test established relationships between global radiation (Rs), photosynthetically active radiation (Rp) and net radiation (Rn). We also examined the variation in vapor pressure deficit (VPD) across the region, and predictions of VPD from temperature data. Predictions of Rs using the MTCLIM package [Agric. For. Meteorol. 93 (1999) 211] accounted for 75% of the variance (r2 = 0.75) in monthly mean...[Show more]
