Smith, J., 2001, Classification of evapotranspiration units in major discharge areas of Death Valley regional: U.S. Geological Survey data release, https://doi.org/10.5066/P9Q9D135.

Summary

These data were released prior to the October 1, 2016 effective date for the USGS’s policy dictating the review, approval, and release of scientific data as referenced in USGS Survey Manual Chapter 502.8 Fundamental Science Practices: Review and Approval of Scientific Data for Release. The raster-based classification of evapotranspiration (ET) units is for nine major discharge areas in the Death Valley regional flow system. The ET units delineate general areas of similar vegetation and soil-moisture conditions. Classifications were derived from Landsat Thematic Mapper imagery data acquired June 13, 1992; Sept. 1, 1992; and June 21, 1989.
