Data sets of actual evapotranspiration rates from 2000 to 2017 for basins in the Suwannee River Water Management District (SRWMD), calculated using the water-balance method, the bias-corrected Operational Simplified Surface Energy Balance (SSEBop) model, and the land-use crop coefficients model.

Actual evapotranspiration (ETa) rates from the Operational Simplified Surface Energy Balance (SSEBop) method, before and after bias corrections (Sepúlveda, 2021), are presented for basins located wholly or partially within the Suwannee River Water Management District (SRWMD) and parts of Georgia. The SSEBop annual rates are provided at about a one square-kilometer scale from 2000 to 2017. Annual ETa rates calculated from the application of the water-balance method (wbETa) to 6 basins in the SRWMD and annual land-use ETa (luETa) rates calculated from monthly average crop coefficient ratios are also provided in this data set. A GIS shapefile provides land-use type and annual ETa rate for each year of record. Data are tabulated in spreadsheets for each basin and are referred to by the name between parenthesis: Alapaha River basin (Alapaha), Withlacoochee River – SRWMD basin (Withla_SRWMD), Upper Suwannee River basin (Upper_Suwannee), Santa Fe River basin (Santa_Fe), Suwannee River basin (Suwannee_River), and Aucilla River basin (Aucilla). Inflows and outflows from various sources in the water-balance equation used to calculate annual average wbETa rates for each basin in the SRWMD area are presented in this dataset.
The purpose of this data release is to present the bias corrected annual Operational Simplified Surface Energy Balance or SSEBop ETa rates, the annual wbETa rates calculated from the water-balance method for the basins in the SRWMD area, and the annual land-use ETa (luETa) rates calculated from monthly average crop coefficient ratios for the 2000 to 2017 period.

The SSEBop rates are based on the SSEBop method described in: Senay, G.B., Bohms, S., Singh, R.K., Gowda, P.H., Velpuri, N.M., Alemu, H., and Verdin. J.P., 2013, Operational Evapotranspiration Mapping Using Remote Sensing and Weather Datasets: A New Parameterization for the SSEB Approach: Journal of the American Water Resources Association, v. 49, no. 3, p. 577-591, DOI: 10.1111/jawr.12057. SSEBop ETa rates were downloaded from https://edcftp.cr.usgs.gov/project/SSEBop/MODIS.

This ArcGIS 10.7.1 polygon shapefile lists land-use type and annual SSEBop ETa rates after bias corrections at about a one square-kilometer scale for the SRWMD area and parts of Georgia. The method used for bias correction, based on comparison of SSEBop ETa rates with ETa rates computed using micrometeorological station data, is discussed by Sepúlveda (2021).

These Microsoft Excel spreadsheets list the annual average change in basin storage calculated from annual differences in water levels averaged over the number of surficial wells with water-level data in the basin. Annual changes in water levels are calculated by subtracting the mean water level at the beginning of the year (January 1) from the mean water level at the end of the year (December 31) for the first year. Annual changes for all other years were calculated from the end of the previous year (December 31) to the end of the following year (December 31).
Water level differences between end of year and beginning of year are averaged over the number of wells in the basin.
