Name of input air temperature raster map [K]
atmospheric_pressure=name [required]
Name of input atmospheric pressure raster map [millibars]

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.
