REMOTE SENSING OF EVAPOTRANSPIRATION

Grant number: LP0211929

Abstract

Improving management of water in irrigated agriculture will lead to increased sustainability, decreased environmental impacts and increased profitability. Quantifying water use efficiency for an irrigation district is a vital part of improving water management. This project aims to develop new methods for quantifying water use efficiency by combining actual evapotranspiration estimates with water delivery information at the farm scale for an entire irrigation district. Remote sensing techniques will be utilized to map actual evapotranspiration and water meter data will be combined with cadastral and channel network data to map water delivery.
