EFsoil (EF at soil)  [More] ETsoil_ins (instantaneous ET at soil)  [More] ETsoil (instantaneous ET: mm/day)  [More]
EFveg (EF at vegetation)  [More] ETveg_ins (instantaneous ET at veg)  [More] ETveg (instantaneous ET: mm/day)  [More]
EFall (EF)  [More] ETall_ins (instantaneous ET)  [More] ETall (instantaneous ET: mm/day)  [More]

Note: EF indicates evaporation fraction. EFsoil, EFveg and EFall is evaporation fraction at soil part, vegetation part and the entire grid cell, respectively. ETsoil_ins, ETveg_ins and ETall_ins is estimated instantaneous ET (i.e. evapotranspiration at satellite overpass time) at soil part, vegetation part and the entire grid cell, respectively. The unit of ETsoil_ins, ETveg_ins and ETall_ins is W s-2. ETsoil, ETveg and ETall shows the same estimated instantaneous ET in the unit of mm/day. ETday is estimated daily ET (W s-2 and mm/day).
