Arguments

method

Method "Turc", "Penman-Monteith", "Priestley-Taylor", "Makkink", "Heargraves-Samani"

freq

Frequency "day", "month"

f_temp

File of air temperature in degC, mandatory

f_relh

File of relative humidity in percent, mandatory

f_radg

File of global radiation in W/m2

f_radn

File of net radiation in W/m2

f_atmp

File of atmospheric pressure in hPa

f_wvel

File of wind velocities in m/s

f_tmin

File of air min temperature in degC

f_tmax

File of air max temperature in degC

lat

Latitude in deg

alt

Altitude in m

albedo

Albedo

z

Anemometer high in m

Details

f_temp and f_relh are mandatory in all cases.

For the Turc method, f_radg is needed.

For the Penman-Monteith method, f_atmp, f_wvel, h and z are needed. If f_radn is not available, lat, f_tmin and ftmax are also needed.

The Turc method only works with a monthly frequency.

Value

An hts files resulting of the operation with a name composed as:

<J or M><EtpTu>_<Station_id>.hts for the Turc method,

<J or M><EtpPM>_<Station_id>.hts for the Penman-Monteith method,

<J or M><EtpPT>_<Station_id>.hts for the Priestley-Taylor method

<J or M><EtpMa>_<Station_id>.hts for the Makkink method

<J or M><EtpHS>_<Station_id>.hts for the Heargraves-Samani method
