Penman-Monteith-Leuning Evapotranspiration V2 (PML_V2) products include evapotranspiration (ET), its three components, and gross primary product (GPP) at 500m and 8-day resolution during 2002-2017 and with spatial range from -60°S to 90°N. The major advantages of the PML_V2 products are:
- coupled estimates of transpiration and GPP via canopy conductance (Gan et al., 2018; Zhang et al., 2019)
- partitioning ET into three components: transpiration from vegetation, direct evaporation from the soil and vaporization of intercepted rainfall from vegetation (Zhang et al., 2016).
The PML_V2 products perform well against observations at 95 flux sites across globe, and are similar to or noticeably better than major state-of-the-art ET and GPP products widely used by water and ecology science communities (Zhang et al., 2019).
