DESCRIPTION

       i.evapo.pt Calculates the diurnal evapotranspiration after Prestley and Taylor (1972). The
       Priestley-Taylor  model  (Priestley  and  Taylor, 1972) is a modification of Penman’s more
       theoretical equation.

NOTES

       RNETD optional output from  i.evapo.potrad  is  giving  good  results  as  input  for  net
       radiation in this module.

       Alpha values:

           ·   1.32  for  estimates  from  vegetated areas as a result of the increase in surface
               roughness (Morton, 1983; Brutsaert and Stricker, 1979)

           ·   1.26 is applicable in humid climates (De Bruin  and  Keijman,  1979;  Stewart  and
               Rouse, 1976; Shuttleworth and Calder, 1979), and temperate hardwood swamps (Munro,
               1979)

           ·   1.74 has been recommended for estimating potential evapotranspiration in more arid
               regions (ASCE, 1990). This worked well in Greece with University of Thessaloniki.
