LE.to.ET {bigleaf} | R Documentation |

## Conversion between Latent Heat Flux and Evapotranspiration

### Description

converts evaporative water flux from mass (ET=evapotranspiration) to energy (LE=latent heat flux) units, or vice versa.

### Usage

```
LE.to.ET(LE, Tair)
ET.to.LE(ET, Tair)
```

### Arguments

`LE` |
Latent heat flux (W m-2) |

`Tair` |
Air temperature (deg C) |

`ET` |
Evapotranspiration (kg m-2 s-1) |

### Details

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`

.

### Examples

```
# LE of 200 Wm-2 and air temperature of 25degC
LE.to.ET(200,25)
```
