This work presents a method for estimating the actual transpiration (ETa) of land surfaces from data provided by Earth Observation satellites (MODIS Terra). The method uses a vegetation index (EVI, Enhanced Vegetation Index) and air temperature data. It was validated with ground measurements of ETa performed by the ...
