Abstract

In the present study, two methods of predicting evapotranspiration by the use of satellite images were compared. Field data in a corn site was measured at agricultural engineering research institute private farm in 6 days. Consequently MODIS images were used for predicting evapotranspiration by SEBAL and S-SEBI algorithms. These algorithms are different in predicting sensible heat flux. The results show that RSME value for the net radiation and soil heat flux was respectively 46 and 43 (w/m2). SEBAL algorithm is capable to estimate sensible heat flux more accurate than S-SEBI so it is able to estimate latent heat flux more accurate. The RSME amount in sensible heat flux and latent heat flux for SEBAL algorithm are 58 and 31 (w/m2) respectively. These amounts in S-SEBI algorithm are 111 and 74 (w/m2). The differences between two algorithms could be because of the use of meteorological data in predicting sensible heat flux and aerodynamic resistance in SEBAL algorithm. Also the results show that SEBAL algorithm estimates hourly evapotranspiration by the difference of 0.05 mm/hour which is about 1% of hourly evapotranspiration Whereas S-SEBI predicted it by the difference of 0.11 and 11%. The difference between measured daily evapotranspiration and SEBAL -based daily evapotranspiration was 0.4 mm that is about 1% less than measured. Whereas these differences by S_SEBI are 1mm and 12%.
