Evapotranspiration in Agro-Ecosystems and Forestry: Spatio-temporal Applications presents the progress and advances made in terms of science and application of evaporation, transpiration and evapotranspiration for various vegetation surfaces, water bodies, bare soil under different soil and crop management (including different irrigation and tillage management) conditions. Sections on forest and wetlands evapotranspiration and grassland evaporative losses. Fundamentals of original Penman, Penman-Monteith, Shuttleworth-Wallace and ASCE-EWRI and FAO56 Penman-Monteith equations and their derivatives as well as primary equations will be presented. The book is an excellent resource to better understand the progression and applications and dynamics of most recent evapotranspiration, evaporation and transpiration measurement and modeling technologies. Case studies will be provided in terms of how different technologies are currently deployed, how data are used for providing information and management decisions to the users.

The book provides scientific and theoretical background on forest evapotranspiration; role of evapotranspiration in hydrology with respect to different land/vegetation covers; remote sensing estimation of evapotranspiration process; partitioning of evapotranspiration to evaporation and transpiration; landscape, including turfgrass water use; climate change vs. evapotranspiration; spatio-temporal attributes of evapotranspiration; evapotranspiration in mountainous and other high altitude regions; arid region evapotranspiration; data fusion and evapotranspiration; and evapotranspiration in crop modeling. The chapters not only present theoretical framework of these topics, but include examples in practical applications. Specific examples from case studies will also be presented.
