Description

'et0' estimates evapotranspiration based on FAO Penman-Monteith equation

Usage

1
et0(Tmax,Tmin, vap_pres,sol_rad,tal,z,uz,meah=10,extraT=NA,days=NA,lat=NA)

Arguments

Tmax

Vector of length n containing daily maximum temperature [C].

Tmin

Vector of length n containing daily minumum temperature [C].

vap_pres

Vector of length n of mean daily vapour pressure [kPa].

sol_rad

Vector of length n of daily solar radiation [MJm-2d-1].

tal

Clear sky transmissivity [0-1].

z

Altitude above the sea level [m].

uz

Wind speed measured at heith 'meah' [ms-1].

meah

The height (above the ground level) of the wind speed measurement [m].

extraT

Optional. Vector of length n of extraterrestrial solar radiation [MJm-2d-1]. If 'NA' then it is calculated by the function. Providing extraterrestrial solar radiation speeds up the computation.

days

Required only if extraT=NA. Vector of class 'Date' of length n.

lat

Required only if extraT=NA. Latitude in decimal degrees.

Value

Vector of length n of daily reference evapotranspiration. [mmd-1]
