Evapotranspiration is a parameter closely related to vegetation state and stress. This session will show how this quantity is obtained within the LSA SAF. Evapotranspiration is estimated using a land surface model forced with radiation and vegetation variables obtained from SEVIRI measurements. Very interesting Resistance scheme of this model is nicely explained using deviding image pixels into \'tiles\' of homogeneous vegetation types. Input and output of this model is also mentioned. Presentation is showing validation and incomparison of results together with possible applications of it.
