Constraining Evapotranspiration and Understanding ET Drivers and Limitations in a Mountain Headwaters System
Mountain regions provide much of the world’s water supply. Although these regions are essential for downstream water delivery, they are challenging to study due to numerous heterogeneities. These heterogeneities include steep topographic gradients, varying land cover, and spatially-diverse atmospheric drivers. For these reasons, high-elevation mountain watersheds are difficult to study using only point observations or remote sensing products. Estimating evapotranspiration (ET) is particularly challenging in these regions as commonly used measurement techniques are not designed for the diversity ...
