Solar radiation and évapotranspiration in northern Mexico estimated from remotely sensed measurements of cloudiness

  title={Solar radiation and {\'e}vapotranspiration in northern Mexico estimated from remotely sensed measurements of cloudiness},
  author={Jaime Garatuza-Payan and Rachel T. Pinker and W. James Shuttleworth and Christopher J. Watts},
Components of a satellite-based system for estimating the crop water requirements of irrigated vegetation were brought together, applied, and tested against field data. The operational framework for obtaining cloud cover was developed and applied, using hourly sampled, 1-km resolution, GOES-7 data as received in real time in Obregon, Mexico. The cloud-screening procedure was used to derive half-hourly estimates of solar radiation from satellite data for the Yaqui Valley irrigation scheme near… CONTINUE READING
