Research Project: Determining the Thermal Sensor Revisit Interval for Remotely Monitoring Evapotranspiration at Field Scales

Location: Hydrology and Remote Sensing Laboratory

Project Number: 8042-13610-028-61
Project Type: Interagency Reimbursable Agreement

Start Date: Jul 01, 2013
End Date: Jul 31, 2015

Objective:
Investigate the relationship between return interval and the error associated with remote sensing-based estimates of evapotranspiration for different ecosystems and climatic regions across the United States.

Approach:
The study will take advantage of in-situ flux datasets to quantify the relationship between remote sensing-base estimates of evapotranspiration and revisit interval over diverse land-use types distributed throughout the contiguous U.S. when the standard interpolations are used.
