Landscape Evaporative Response Index (LERI): A high resolution monitoring and assessment of evapotranspiration across the Contiguous United States

Imtiaz, Lesley Smith, Gabriel Senay, Joseph Barsugli, Stefanie Kagone, Mike Hobbins Rangwala
Landscape Evaporative Response Index (LERI) is remotely-sensed high-resolution information of the evaporative response from the land in near real time. LERI assesses anomalies in actual evapotranspiration (ETa), as percentiles, across the Contiguous US and northern Mexico at a 1-km spatial resolution. LERI is based on the ETa data produced by the U. S. Geological Survey using the operational Simplified Surface Energy Balance (SSEBop) model. SSEBop combines evapotranspiration fraction generated from remotely sensed MODIS thermal imagery,...
