Bastiaanssen WaterWatch, Wageningen, The Netherlands [email protected] Ralf Waters SEBAL Surface Energy Balance Algorithm for Land Developed by – Dr. Wim Bastiaanssen, International Institute for Aerospace Survey and Earth Sciences, The Netherlands applied in a wide range of international settings brought to the U.S. by Univ. Idaho in 2000 in cooperation with Idaho Department of Water Resources and NASA/Raytheon Why Satellites? Typical method for ET: – weather data are gathered from fixed points -assumed to extrapolate over large areas – “crop coefficients” assume “well-watered” situation (impacts of stress are difficult to quantify) Satellite imagery: – energy balance is applied at each “pixel” to map spatial variation – areas where water shortage reduces ET are identified – little or no ground data are required – valid for natural vegetation Definition of Remote Sensing: The art and science of acquiring information using a non-contact device SEBAL UI/IDWR Modifications – digital elevation models for radiation balances in mountains (using slope / aspect / sun angle) – ET at known points tied to alfalfa reference using weather data from Agrimet – testing with lysimeter (ET) data from Bear River basin (during 2000) from USDA-ARS at Kimberly (during 2001) How SEBAL Works SEBAL keys off: – – – – – reflectance of light energy vegetation indices surface temperature relative variation in surface temperature general wind speed (from ground station) Satellite Compatibility SEBAL needs both short wave and thermal bands SEBAL can use images from: – NASA-Landsat (30 m, each 8 or 16 days) - since 1982 – NOAA-AVHRR (advanced very high resolution radiometer) (1 km, daily) - since 1980’s – NASA-MODIS (moderate resolution imaging spectroradiometer) (500 m, daily) - since 1999 – NASA-ASTER (Advanced Spaceborne Thermal Emission and Reflection Radiometer) (15 m, 8 days) - since 1999 Image Processing ERDAS Imagine used to process Landsat images • SEBAL equations programmed and edited in Model Maker function • 20 functions / steps run per image What Landsat Sees V i s i b l e N e a r I n f r a r e d Land Surface Wavelength in Microns 0 0 . 4 0 . 6 0 . 8 1 . 2 1 . 6 2 . 0 2 . 4 B a n d : 1 2 3 4 57 V a r io u s a m o u n t s o fr e f le c t io n Landsat Band 6 is the long-wave “thermal” band and is used for surface temperature What We Can See With SEBAL Evapotranspiration at time of overpass Oakley Fan, Idaho, July 7, 1989 Uses of ET Maps Extension / Verification of Pumping or Diversion Records Recharge to the Snake Plain Aquifer Feedback to Producers regarding crop health and impacts of irrigation uniformity and adequacy Why Use SEBAL? ET via Satellite using SEBAL can provide dependable (i.e. accurate) information ET can be determined remotely ET can be determined over large spatial scales ET can be aggregated over space and time Future Applications ET from natural systems – wetlands – rangeland – forests/mountains use scintillometers and eddy correlation to improve elevation-impacted algorithms in SEBAL – hazardous waste sites ET from cities – changes in ET as land use changes Reflected Net Radiation = radiation in – radiation out Energy Balance for ET ET is calculated as a “residual” of the energy balance Rn Basic Truth: Evaporation consumes Energy H ET ET = R n - G - H G The energy balance includes all major sources (Rn) and consumers (ET, G, H) of energy Surface Radiation Balance Shortwave Radiation Longwave Radiation RL RS aRS (Incident longwave) (1-eo)RL (reflected longwave) RL (Reflected shortwave) (emitted longwave) (Incident shortwave) Vegetation Surface Net Surface Radiation = Gains – Losses Rn = (1-a)RS + RL - RL - (1-eo)RL Preparing the Image A layered spectral band image is created from the geo-rectified disk using ERDAS Imagine software.

Model_07 – Effective at Satellite Temperature Surface Temperature Ts Tbb e 0.25 0 Systematic errors that largely self-cancel in SEBAL: 1) Atmospheric transmissivity losses are not accounted for. 2) Thermal radiation from the atmosphere is not accounted for. Fortunately, in SEBAL, the use of a “floating” air-surface temperature function and the anchoring of ET at well-watered and dry pixels usually eliminates the need to applyatmospheric correction.
