Layer Suggestio- Evapotranspiration
Is Windy planning on adding another layer that shows Evapotranspiration, this is particularly useful for irrigation, and water management for areas where water is an scarce resource
The weather models used by Windy can provide estimation of evaporation on bare soil. But evapotranspiration includes also transpiration from the vegetation covers and from the crops. So it’s difficult to provide a detailed map of real evapotranspiration according to the different crops and their development stages. However we can imagine that potential evapotranspiration would be calculated by algorithms from appropriate parameters (Penman-Monteith formula), but Windy visualize only data provided by weather models themselves.
