Introduction
Process step Sources
Evapotranspiration has been calculated with monthly mean temperature and precipitations of the climate normal. Potential evapotranspiration has been calculated using Thornthwaite equation. Actual evapotranspiration has been calculated with potential evapotranspiration and soil moisture deficit. Evapotranspiration data were compiled in an excel file with geographic coordinates, elevation and name of the weather stations. The excel file was converted to point shapefile. The potential and actual evapotranspiration data were interpolated using IDW method with a power parameter of value 6. The values obtained were classified in three classes.
