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...

The dataset includes daily rainfall collected at Puerto Mosquito, Isla de Vieques and Caño Boquerón, Cabo Rojo, Puerto Rico from July 1, 2015 to July 28, 2016. Two rain gages were installed at: 1) USGS stations: 50129935 - Caño Boquerón No. 3, and 2) 50231500 - Laguna Bahía Puerto Mosquito No. 1. Site inspections of both rain gages occurred at 6-weeks intervals. Further details regarding the calibration, equipment, and data processing are available in the USGS National Information System (NWIS).

ScienceBase brings together the best information it can find about USGS researchers and offices to show connections to publications, projects, and data. We are still working to improve this process and information is by no means complete. If you don't see everything you know is associated with you, a colleague, or your office, please be patient while we work to connect the dots. Feel free to contact sciencebase@usgs.gov.
