Daily reference and potential evapotranspiration, and supporting meteorological data from weather stations, solar insolation data from the GOES satellite, and blue-sky albedo data from the MODIS satellite, Florida, 2019

Metadata Updated: July 6, 2024

Potential evapotranspiration (PET), and reference evapotranspiration (ETo) are estimated at an approximately 2-kilometer (approximately 0.019 degrees longitude and 0.018 degrees latitude) spatial grid and daily time-scale from January 1, 2019 to December 31, 2019 for the entire State of Florida. PET and ETo were computed on the basis of solar radiation, meteorological data (minimum/maximum temperature, minimum/maximum relative humidity, and mean wind speed at 2-meter height), and shortwave blue-sky albedo data for 2019. Solar radiation was computed from Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite (GOES) sensor data; blue-sky albedo was computed from the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectrometer (MODIS) MCD43A1 BRDF/Albedo data product; and meteorological data were obtained from weather stations maintained by the Florida Automated Weather Network (FAWN), the South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD), and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).
