      Summary: Time series of monthly minimum and maximum temperature, precipitation, and potential evapotranspiration were derived for 1, watersheds in the conterminous United States for which stream flow measurements were also available from the national streamflow database, termed the Hydro-Climatic Data Network (HCDN), developed by Slack et al. (a,b). Remotely sensed land surface temperature- (LST-) dependent evapotranspiration (ET) models and vegetation index- (VI-) LST methods may not be suitable for ET estimation in energy-limited cold areas. In this study, the relationship of ET to LST was simulated using the process-based Simultaneous Heat and Water (SHAW) model for energy- and water-limited conditions in Mongolia, to understand the.

As Thornthwaite () pointed out, wet and dry climates are determined neither by total nor seasonal precipitation but by the relation of precipitation to the evaporative demand.

For example, precipitation amounts are nearly equal in California's Mojave Desert and in Alaska's forested and frequently boggy interior.

In addition to estimates of potential and actual evapotranspiration, Thornthwaite ' s method provides estimates of streamflow and a quantitative method for the classifica- tion of climates. Only a few comparisons of, estimated with measured PET are known for Alaska and northwestern Canada.

Precipitation. The Potential Evapotranspiration is expressed as the amount of moisture that will be transferred to atmosphere by evaporation of solid and liquid water and by transpiration from living tissues, principally plants. Potential evapotranspiration (ET p) and reference crop evapotranspiration (ET o) differ in their developments, concepts, equations and application fields, however, many researchers have mixed the utilization of the twoit is necessary to clarify the terms to guide their proper usage.

The aim of this study is to provide a comprehensive review of the concepts, developments, equations. Climate classification is an effort to recognize, clarify, and simplify climatic similarities and difference between geographic areas in order to enhance the scientific understanding of climates.

The Alaska vegetation classification presented here is a comprehensive, statewide system that has been under development since The classification is based. Thornthwaite's () empirical method of estimating potential evapotranspiration (PE) has been preferred by several scientists in India to Penman's () theoretical combination approach, because of the former's simplicity.

However, in view of the doubts expressed in various quarters regarding the applicability of Thornthwaite's method for monsoon climates, a comparison is made of the. Based on potential evapotranspiration (potential ET or PET), which approximates use of water by climate classification based on monthly and annual averages of temperature and precipitation; boundaries between climate classes are designed so that climate types coincide with vegetation regions.

Koppen produced the most widely used climate classification system of the twenti eth century. He introduced his initial classification in and continued to refine.

Potential evapotranspiration (PET) is one of the inputs to the Palmer Drought Severity Index (PDSI). A common approach to calculating PDSI is to use the Thornthwaite method for estimating PET becau. [1] Over the past 50 years, Alaska has experienced a warming climate with longer growing seasons, increased potential evapotranspiration, and permafrost warming.

Research from the Seward Peninsula and Kenai Peninsula has demonstrated a substantial landscape‐level trend in the reduction of surface water and number of closed‐basin ponds.

Journal of the American Water Resources Associa-tion (JAWRA) 41(3) INTRODUCTION Although several variations of the definition exist, potential evapotranspiration (PET) can be generally defined as the amount of water that could evaporate. evapotranspiration measured by nonweighing lysimeters.

Their study used data from five sites in Tunisia. The climate at the five sites ranged from Mediterranean to hot desert, similar to the climate in this study.

For the Tunisia areas, they found that only the Penman and Turc methods gave acceptable estimates of potential evapotranspiration. Distinctions are made (Figure 4) between reference crop evapotranspiration (ET o), crop evapotranspiration under standard conditions (ET c) and crop evapotranspiration under non-standard conditions (ET c adj).ET o is a climatic parameter expressing the evaporation power of the atmosphere.

ET c refers to the evapotranspiration from excellently managed, large, well-watered fields that.
