Abstract

Landsat thematic mapper data are used to estimate instantaneous regional-scale surface water and energy fluxes in a semi-arid Great Basin desert of the western United States. Results suggest that it is possible to scale from point measurements of environmental state variables to regional estimates of water and energy exchange. This research characterizes the unifying thread in the classical climate-topography-soil-vegetation relation, the surface water and energy balance, through maps of the partitioning of energy throughout the landscape. The study was conducted in Goshute Valley of northeastern Nevada
