The backward‐averaged iterative two‐source surface temperature and energy balance solution (BAITSSS) model was developed to calculate evapotranspiration (ET) at point to regional scales. The BAITSSS model is driven by micrometeorological data and vegetation indices and simulates the water and energy balance of the soil and canopy sources separately, using the Jarvis model to calculate canopy resistance. The BAITSSS model has undergone limited testing in Idaho, United States. We conducted a… 
Increased Bias in Evapotranspiration Modeling Due to Weather and Vegetation Indices Data Sources
1407 Surface energy balance algorithms require accurate meteorological data and vegetation indices to generate accurate water and energy fluxes including evapotranspiration (ET) (Kotlarski et al.,
Utilizing digital image processing and two-source energy balance model for the estimation of evapotranspiration of dry edible beans in western Nebraska
Having an accurate yet simple method to estimate crop evapotranspiration (ETC) is a vital component of reliable irrigation scheduling. In this study, two versions of the two-source energy balance
Energy Imbalance and Evapotranspiration Hysteresis Under an Advective Environment: Evidence From Lysimeter, Eddy Covariance, and Energy Balance Modeling
Surface energy imbalance problems have been underexplored especially under advective environments. Here, we present a novel analysis of surface energy fluxes from three distinct approaches—weighing
A Multiyear Assessment of Irrigation Cooling Capacity in Agricultural and Urban Settings of Central Arizona
Irrigation water use associated with agricultural activities and urban green spaces provides substantial cooling effects and ameliorates heat in central Arizona. In this arid and semiarid area,
A Decade of Unmanned Aerial Systems in Irrigated Agriculture in the Western U.S.
A decade of efforts on research and development efforts focused on UAS technologies and methodologies developed for irrigation management are described, including the evolution of aircraft and sensors in contrast to data from satellites.

Evapotranspiration between satellite overpasses: methodology and case study in agricultural dominant semi‐arid areas
A backward‐averaged iterative two‐source surface temperature and energy balance solution (BAITSSS) algorithm was developed to estimate evapotranspiration (ET) during the period between Landsat
Estimating Evapotranspiration for Dryland Cropping Systems in the Semiarid Texas High Plains Using SWAT
The Soil and Water Assessment Tool (SWAT) is one of the most widely used watershed models for simulating hydrology in response to agricultural management practices. However, limited studies have been
Advection Influences on Evapotranspiration of Alfalfa in a Semiarid Climate
Advective enhancement of crop evapotranspiration (ET) occurs when drier, hotter air is transported into the crop by wind, and can be an important factor in the water balance of irrigated crops in a
Comparison of methods for estimating evapotranspiration rate of dry forest canopy: Eddy covariance, Bowen ratio energy balance, and Penman-Monteith equation
[1] A multiyear, multitechnique study was conducted to estimate latent heat flux within a temperate mixed forest of broad-leaved and coniferous trees of Changbai Mountains in northeastern China.
Process‐based characterization of evapotranspiration sources over the North American monsoon region
Evapotranspiration (ET) is a poorly constrained flux in the North American monsoon (NAM) region, leading to potential errors in land‐atmosphere feedbacks. We quantified the spatiotemporal variations
Surface Energy Balance Based Evapotranspiration Mapping in the Texas High Plains
METRIC (Mapping Evapotranspiration at High Resolution using Internalized Calibration), a remote sensing based ET algorithm, was evaluated for mapping ET in the Texas High Plains region and results are good considering the prevailing advective conditions in the THP.
Alternative Methods to Predict Actual Evapotranspiration Illustrate the Importance of Accounting for Phenology: The Event Driven Phenology Model Part II
Evapotranspiration ( ET) flux constitutes a major component of both the water and energy balances at the land surface. Among the many factors that control evapotranspiration, phenology poses a major
