Mapping evapotranspiration at a high resolution using the surface aerodynamic temperature model and airborne multispectral remote sensing data
Irrigation is the largest single consumer of water in the world, and with the increasing population, limitation of natural resources, climate change, and global warming, the pressure on water resources has become more significant and attention to agriculture is increasing daily. The limitation of agricultural areas requires efficient use of these areas to obtain a maximum yield. Evapotranspiration (ET) is a major component of the water budget and energy balance. Therefore, exact measurement of plant water use (and thus ET) is vital for efficient use of water resources, planning, and management ...
