Li, Q; Chen, X; Bao, AM (2012). Evapotranspiration retrieval in Arid and Semi-Arid Areas. PROGRESS IN ENVIRONMENTAL SCIENCE AND ENGINEERING (ICEESD2011), PTS 1-5, 356-360, 2307-2311.

A typical arid area in China is the province of Xinjiang. The objective of this paper is to present a description of a method based on the energy balance and evaporative fraction, which is obtained by broadband albedo and land surface temperature, to estimate evapotranspiration (ET) in And Areas. In Arid areas, the ET always fluctuates from 0 to 2mm in the most part of region in 2005, especially the Tarim, Junggar and Turpan basins. In the mountain especially Tian-shan mountain and crop land of oasis, ET values rises 6mm.
