    Abstract: A watershed is an area covering all the land that contributes water after rainfall occurs to a common point. Watershed management programme is mainly for conservation and development of natural resources. Remote Sensing and Geographic Information System (GIS) are emerging very powerful tools for analyzing spatial distributed information. In these s... Show More

    Abstract: In this paper attempt is made to estimate reference evapotranspiration (ETo) from standard meteorological observations. The FAO-56 Penman-Monteith method is the most physical, reliable and mostly used as a standard to verify other empirical methods. However, it needs a lot of different input parameters. Hence, in the present study, a model based on... Show More
