Where does our water go?


  1. Discussed topic in which I was interested in studying.
  2. Retrieve the parameters needed for project from the State Climate Office's CRONOS Database.
  3. Sorted the data by the season.
  4. Use the retrieved data and found the average value for the evapotranspiration.
  5. Took the data and made annual average and a seasonal average for the data and graphed this newly calculated data.
  6. Took data and calculated the seasonal max evapotranspiration.
  7. Graphed the other parameters (humidity, air temperature, solar radiation, soil temperature, and wind speed) for their seasons and also created correlation graphs comparing other variables to evapotranspiration.
  8. We also did another correlation graph between soil radiation and air temperature just for the concept.
  9. We then went through a process of transferring some of the data to a program called ArcMap.
  10. With this software we created multiple maps with the overall information collected from the 9 stations and the 7 parameters.

Map of the 9 ECONet stations I used.
