Summary

This U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) data release consists of 20-minute evapotranspiration (ET) measurements/estimates for the time period September 15, 1993 to August 27, 1994. These data are derived from measurements of actual ET conducted at a site within the Lake Wales Ridge, Florida characterized by sandy, rapidly-drained soils, and hilly topography. The station is located at a site (28 degrees 29 minutes 12 seconds North / 081 degrees 38 minutes 19 seconds West) within Orange County, Florida. The surrounding landscape is vegetated by natal grass, dog fennel, dwarf horseweed, and ragweed. The water table is generally more than a meter below land surface. Actual ET measurements were derived using the eddy-covariance method. Funding [...]
