Table of contents


i.eb.hsebal01 will calculate the sensible heat flux map (h0), given both maps of Net Radiation and soil Heat flux (Rn, g0) at instantaneous time, the surface roughness (z0m), a map of the altitude corrected temperature (t0dem), a point data of the frictional velocity (u*), a value of actual vapour pressure (ea[KPa]) and the (x,y) pairs for wet and dry pixels. Full process will need those: (for time integration: i.evapo.time_integration)

i.eb.hsebal01 performs the computation of sensible heat flux [W/m2] after Bastiaanssen, 1995 in [1], used in this form in 2001 by [2]. Implemented in this code in [3].
