Abstract

There is a growing concern about water scarcity and the associated decline in Australia’s agricultural production. Efficient water use as a natural resource requires more precise and adequate monitoring of crop water use and irrigation scheduling. Therefore, accurate estimations of evapotranspiration (ET) at proper spatial–temporal scales are critical to understand the crop water demand and uptake and to enable optimal irrigation scheduling. Remote sensing (RS)-based ET estimation has been adopted as a method for large-scale applications when the detailed spatial representation of ET is required. This research aimed to estimate instantaneous ET using very-high-resolution (VHR) multispectral ..
