Terrestrial evapotranspiration dataset across China (1982-2017)

Terrestrial evapotranspiration dataset across China (1982-2017)

This dataset (version 1.5) is derived from the complementary-relationship method, with inputs of CMFD downward short- and long-wave radiation, air temperature, air pressure, GLASS albedo and broadband longwave emissivity, ERA5-land land surface temperature and humidity, and NCEP diffuse skylight ratio, etc. This dataset covers the period of 1982-2017, and the spatial coverage is Chinese land area. This dataset would be helpful for long-term hydrological cycle and climate change research.

Land surface actual evapotranspiration (Ea),unit: mm month-1.

The spatial resolution is 0.1-degree;

The temporal resolution is monthly;

The data type is NetCDF;

This evapotranspiration dataset is only for land surface.

File naming and required software

The file is named Ea_1982_2017_CR.nc, which can be viewed and edited by ncviewer software.
