[1] The Watershed Allied Telemetry Experimental Research (WATER) is a simultaneous airborne, satellite-borne, and ground-based remote sensing experiment aiming to improve the observability, understanding, and predictability of hydrological and related ecological processes at a catchment scale. WATER consists of the cold region, forest, and arid region hydrological experiments as well as a hydrometeorology experiment and took place in the Heihe River Basin, a typical inland river basin in the…

Monitoring of Evapotranspiration in a Semi-Arid Inland River Basin by Combining Microwave and Optical Remote Sensing Observations

As a typical inland river basin, Heihe River basin has been experiencing severe water resource competition between different land cover types, especially in the middle stream and downstream areas.

Monitoring of Evapotranspiration in a Semi-Arid Inland River Basin by Combining Microwave and Optical Remote Sensing Observations

A hybrid remotely sensed ETa estimation model named ETMonitor is developed to estimate the daily actual evapotranspiration of the Heihe River basin for the years 2009–2011 at a spatial resolution of 1 km, and shows reasonable spatial and temporal patterns with respect to the diverse cold and arid landscapes in the upstream, middle stream and downstream regions.
