#' Actual evapotranspiration
#'
#' The function \code{ea()} processes the actual evapotranspiration.
#' It follows the expression of Skaugen,Peerebom and Nilsson(2015):
#' Ea = Ep*(S+Z)/M, with Ep = cea*T, the potential evapotranspiration
#' @param soilType type of soil (soil or bog)
#' @param eatemp evapotransiration
#' @param cea degree-day factor, positive (resp neg) for positive (resp neg) temperature
#' @param M groundwater storage capacity
#' @param D the potential volumee of water that is needed for complete saturation at time t
#' @param G Volume of received moisture input of rain and snowmelt a time t
#' @param middelsca average snow coverage over the level zones
