Upper Rio Grand River Basin SSEBop Monthly Sum Actual Evapotranspiration (ET) 1984-2015

The monthly ET data for the Upper Rio Grande River Basin from January 1984-December 2015 were created using the operational Simplified Surface Energy Balance (SSEBop) model to quantify and map ET over irrigated fields using Landsat imagery and associated weather datasets. The data are provided in GeoTIFF format and can be downloaded per month or year.

Satelite-based ET is useful for several agro-hydrologic applications such as basin water budget studies and drought monitoring. The Landsat satellite is unique in providing a field-scale estimation of ET with an unparalleled archive for historical perspective and trend analysis.
