Summary

The data set consists of evapotranspiration measurements made at the USGS Dead River forested wetland climate station beginning November 21, 2009 and ending February 29, 2016. Annual ET rates corrected to a near-surface energy-budget varied from 1448 mm (2012) to 1614 mm (2010). The eddy-covariance method was used, with high-frequency sensors installed above the forest canopy to measure sensible and latent heat fluxes. Ancillary meteorological data are also included in the data set: net radiation, soil temperature and moisture, air temperature, relative humidity, wind speed and direction, rainfall, and ground-water levels. Data were collected at 30-minute resolution, with evapotranspiration corrected to the near-surface energy-budget [...]

Purpose

Data were collected to quantify evapotranspiration over a representative land cover (forested wetland) in west-central Florida. Evapotranspiration is a large but not-well quantified component of local and regional water budgets. Water budgets and models that use this improved estimate of evapotranspiration should provide more accurate predictions of effects on water resources attributable to changes in water use, land use, normal climate cycles, and long-term climate change. The full data release associated with this site consists of: 1. Dead River evapotranspiration, 30-minute data, from December 2009 through February 2016 (tab delimited text format) 2. Dead River evapotranspiration, daily data, from December 2009 through February 2016 (tab delimited text format) 3. Dead River evapotranspiration, monthly data, from December 2009 through February 2016 (tab delimited text format) 4. Ancillary files: Station analysis (pdf), Vegetation table (pdf), Vegetation photographs (pdf) and Equipment photographs (pdf).
