Evapotranspiration Measurements and Modeling in the Everglades
In 1995, a study to measure and model evapotranspiration (ET) in the Everglades was begun as part of the US Geological Survey South Florida Ecosystem Program. The principle objective of the study is to develop an understanding of ET within the Everglades drainage unit, excluding agricultural and brackish environments. To achieve this, a network of eight ET-measurement sites was established, representing the various types of hydrologic and vegetative environments. Continuous measurement of ET at these sites for at least a 2-year period (October 1995 through September 1997) will be used to develop regional models of ET that can be used to estimate ET at other times throughout the Everglades.
