Daily evaporation product - Ebro basin

Go to full metadata Linkset {json} Linked data {json}

Evaporation (E) is the estimated flux of water evaporated from the land surface, including vegetation and bare soil. The product is generated from Two-source Energy Balance (TSEB) model forced by ESA Copernicus Sentinel-2A/B MSI and Sentinel-3A/B SLSTR LST imagery together with ECMWF ERA5 reanalysis data. Evaporation maps are available at 100-m spatial resolution for the period 2017-2021 over the Ebro basin in Spain. The spatial extent corresponds to Sentinel-2 tiling grids overlapping with the study area. The E layer contains one single band with evaporation values per day [mm/day] corresponding to Sentinel-3 acquisition day. Invalid pixels, mainly due to cloud contamination and lack of input data for TSEB, are filled with NaN values. Evaporation outputs are generated in netCDF format with metadata included in the file attributes. Datasets are available for each month (Jan-Dec) of the year separately in the form of stacked daily E observations.
