China-ASEAN 2013 Evapotranspiration Dataset Becomes Available
 Date: 2015-06-30  Page Views:

On June 2, 2015, China-ASEAN 2013 Evapotranspiration Dataset, compiled by the Water Cycle section of RADI’s State Key Laboratory of Remote Sensing Science, was released and become available to the public through the Global Change Research Data Publisher & Repository.

The evapotranspiration (ET) dataset at a spatial resolution of 1km (MuSyQ-ET-1km-2013) (DOI:10.3974/geodb.2015.01.11.V1) is developed based on the ETMonitor, an ET estimation model considering diverse landscapes with a variety of parameters. It is produced and distributed in 40 adjacent non-overlapping Sinusoidal tiles that are approximately 10°×10° (at the equator). The temporal-spatial resolution is 1km/1d.

The ten members of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) are mainly located at the Indo-China Peninsula and the Malay Archipelago, including Burma, Thailand, Cambodia, Laos, Vietnam, Malaysia, Singapore, Brunei, the Philippines, and Indonesia. With a special geographic location, these tropical countries occupy the lowest latitude zones and the equatorial portions of Asia as well as a transition zone between Asia and Australia showing mixed climatic and biological features of the two continents. In the history of cooperation, China and ASEAN have always valued their environmental protection and sustainable utilization of natural resources with special attention paid to macro and dynamic monitoring of ecological environment. The ET dataset represents an important outcome of the two sides’ cooperation on scientific research and it also constitutes a vital database for the comprehensive evaluation of ecological environment.

Spatially Distributed Evapotranspiration over China and ASEAN for 2013.
