Summary

This U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) data release consists of evapotranspiration measurements made at the USGS Immokalee row crop climate station beginning September 22, 2008 and ending January 8, 2009. Daily evapotranspiration rates corrected to a near-surface energy-budget varied from 0.1 millimeter (9/28/2008) to 3.3 millimeters (9/24/2008). The eddy-covariance method was used, with high-frequency sensors installed above an experimental field planted in green peppers 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, and ground-water level. Data were collected at 30-minute [...]

Purpose

Data were collected to quantify evapotranspiration over a representative land cover (row crop) in south-central Florida. Evapotranspiration (ET) is a large but not-well quantified component of local and regional water budgets. Data were also collected at this site to provide comparison between the eddy-covariance method and the drainage lysimeter method.
