Use latent heat amount (LE) data measured using eddy covariance instruments to compute evapo- transpiration (ET). The LE and ET are related via the latent heat of vaporization

Water Science and the Environment

Latent heat, evapotranspiration; processing large data sets

Problem 1.

Use latent heat amount (LE) data measured using eddy covariance instruments to compute evapo- transpiration (ET). The LE and ET are related via the latent heat of vaporization ( ):

ET = LE/

where:

ET is in mm/s (millimeters of water per second) LE is in W/m2 (Watts per square meter)

= 2500000 J/kg (Joules per kilogram of water)

Required

Optionally: do steps 1-3 below for extra credit (10 points). Otherwise, go to step 4 below (no extra credit).

(1) Download the data (use the procedure below)

(2) Some data points are missing (they are marked as “-9999”). Remove them from the dataset.

(3) Compute a 48-point (daily) moving average to smooth out the data (to remove noise).

(4)Convert LE data to ET data using the formula given above. Convert from the units of mm/s to mm/day (multiply by 60*60*24).

(5)On four separate graphs plot the following variables as a function of time: your computed ET, PREC, your computed average SWC and TA. [Note: time should be on the horizontal axis and the variable of interest on the vertical axis.]

(6)Write a short explanation of the data. How does ET change over the three-year period? Are there any regularities? Seasonal trends? Explain the maxima and minima in ET values using the values of PREC, SWC and TA, as well as the common sense. Which of them is most strongly cor- related with ET? Add any observations of your own.

A masterpiece of assignment by , written on 2020-03-12

Oh my god! This writing company has saved me from so many bothering and figured out my problem in the best way possible. I am not fond of reading and when this book review was given to me as part of my coursework, I went into depression. But I must say, my writer came up with an amazing book review covering all the major aspects of the book nicely. I am waiting for other assignments to come so that I would come here again. The place is good and quite reasonable as well which makes it easy for me to manage my budget.

I ordered the literature review for my research project in rush delivery. I was not expecting that they would complete my order 2 hours before my chosen time. The quality is also nice. Thank you for help.
