Summary
Abstract: The GHAAS (USA) collection contains data used to compare water balance
estimates over U.S. watersheds modeled by eleven potential
evapotranspiration functions. The terrestrial water cycle is of
critical importance to a wide array of Earth System processes. It
plays a central role in climate and meteorology, plant community
dynamics, carbon and nutrient ... View entire text
