Daily Reference Evapotranspiration (ETo) for Haiti and the Dominican Republic


Map_attribution

Daily reference evapotranspiration (ETo) is now available for Haiti and the Dominican Republic.  CLICK HERE to visit the new pragwater page, which provides a link to the daily image data and the method background information.  The page also provides information related to the practical application of the results for scheduling irrigation in Haiti and the Dominican Republic.

NEXRAD is back online in Puerto Rico. But now GOES solar radiation product is down.


NEXRAD radar (rainfall) in Puerto Rico is back online, but now NOAA’s GOES satellite data, used for estimating ground-level solar radiation, is offline!  Urrrr!!  That means that GOES-PRWEB is still suffering from missing data.  The algorithm currently uses an average of the last 14 days when the solar data is missing.  GOES-13 data has been offline for around 7 days now.  Hopefully it won’t be too long before we are receiving the solar data again. 

Good News!! GOES-13 is back online. Solar Radiation Data is Available For Downloading


Good News!!  GOES-13 is back online.  Solar Radiation Can be downloaded by clicking HERE

The GOES-13 satellite was offline from September 25 through October 19, 2012.  During this time, solar radiation data for PR and the northern Caribbean Region were not available.  However, the water and energy balance algorithm (GOES-PRWEB) continued to function with estimated solar radiation data.  GOES-PRWEB results for solar radiation and 24 other hydro-climate variables are available at
