MOD16 for actual evapotranspiration measurement

This project is part of NASA/EOS project to estimate global terrestrial evapotranspiration from earth land surface by using satellite remote sensing data. MOD16 global evapotranspiration product can be used to calculate regional water and energy balance, soil water status; hence, it provides key information for water resource management.

What about landsat LDCM for water resources?

 

A new Landsat satellite was launched one Monday (Feb. 11, 2013) from the Vanderberg Air Force Base in California. The LDCM or Landsat Data Continuity Mission joined the 15-year-old Landsat 7 and the 30-year-old Landsat 5. Since satellites are attracted by earth gravity, the launch of new satellites is important to preserve the continuity of the image registration.
