Caribbean-Florida Water Science Center
Evapotranspiration Publications for the Caribbean-Florida Water Science Center
ET and evaporation studies conducted by the Florida Water Science Center over the past 25 years are published in USGS reports, journal articles, and books. These publications describe ET rates, factors controlling ET in various landscapes, and how ET affects the hydrologic cycle and watershed processes.
