Parameters:


Name of input net radiation raster map [W/m2]

Name of input soil heat flux raster map [W/m2]

Name of input air temperature raster map [K]

Name of input atmospheric pressure raster map [millibars]

Priestley-Taylor coefficient
Default: 1.26

Name of output evapotranspiration raster map [mm/d]

DESCRIPTION

i.evapo.pt Calculates the diurnal evapotranspiration after Prestley and Taylor (1972). The Priestley-Taylor model (Priestley and Taylor, 1972) is a modification of Penman’s more theoretical equation.

NOTES

RNETD optional output from i.evapo.potrad is giving good results as input for net radiation in this module.

Alpha values:

  • 1.32 for estimates from vegetated areas as a result of the increase in surface roughness (Morton, 1983; Brutsaert and Stricker, 1979)
  • 1.26 is applicable in humid climates (De Bruin and Keijman, 1979; Stewart and Rouse, 1976; Shuttleworth and Calder, 1979), and temperate hardwood swamps (Munro, 1979)
  • 1.74 has been recommended for estimating potential evapotranspiration in more arid regions (ASCE, 1990). This worked well in Greece with University of Thessaloniki.
Alpha values extracted from: Watflood manual.
