Remote sensing –Beyond images
Mexico 14-15 December 2013

The workshop was organized by CIMMYT Global Conservation Agriculture Program (GCAP) and funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation (BMGF), the Mexican Secretariat of Agriculture, Livestock, Rural Development, Fisheries and Food (SAGARPA), the International Maize and Wheat Improvement Center (CIMMYT), CGIAR Research Program on Maize, the Cereal System Initiative for South Asia (CSISA) and the Sustainable Modernization of the Traditional Agriculture (MasAgro)

Daily evapotranspiration by combining remote sensing with ground observations: Study from Maricopa, Arizona USA

  1. 1. Daily evapotranspiration by combining remote sensing with ground observations: Study from Maricopa, Arizona USA Andy French and Doug Hunsaker andrew.french@ars.usda.gov U.S. Arid Land Agricultural Research Center, USDA/ARS, Maricopa, AZ USA
  2. 2. Obtaining Daily ET Estimates Useful for Growers •Remote sensing provides synoptic views and ways to model instantaneous ET •Obstacles; •Image data too infrequent •Or too coarse •Costly •Combine remote sensing data with ground observations •Obtain image data as available •Continuous monitoring of meteorology and land surface temperatures •Model spatial LST and vegetation cover •Compute surface energy balance hourly, integrate to daily
