LE.to.ET {bigleaf} | R Documentation |
converts evaporative water flux from mass (ET=evapotranspiration) to energy (LE=latent heat flux) units, or vice versa.
LE.to.ET(LE, Tair)
ET.to.LE(ET, Tair)
LE |
Latent heat flux (W m-2) |
Tair |
Air temperature (deg C) |
ET |
Evapotranspiration (kg m-2 s-1) |
The conversions are given by:
ET = LE/\lambda
LE = \lambda ET
where \lambda
is the latent heat of vaporization (J kg-1) as calculated by
latent.heat.vaporization
.
# LE of 200 Wm-2 and air temperature of 25degC
