Estimating evapotranspiration

March 9, 2012

The water cycle of the Earth's surface involves both transpiration and evaporation in a process called evapotranspiration. At this workshop, specialists will share new methodologies and technology available to help with estimating ET.

New technologies and methods for estimating evapotranspiration will be discussed. This workshop will provide water professionals the latest science, tools, and data to accurately calculate ET for a variety of settings and scales.

Morning and afternoon sessions

During the morning session, speakers at this year’s workshop will provide up-to-date information on evapotranspiration research and operational support.

The afternoon session is designed to meet many of the needs expressed by participants of the 2010 Workshop: specifically, how to tie all the information presented together in an example case study.
