A major component of the water balance in agricultural and natural vegetation systems is evapotranspiration (ET), which comprises transport of water vapor to the atmosphere through soil evaporation and plant transpiration. Understanding ET is vital for the high water use efficiency of irrigated agriculture, the efficient management of natural ecosystems like forests, and as a boundary condition for atmospheric or soil water modeling. Recently, much research has been devoted to developing ET modeling and measurement approaches, in order to understand its dynamics under various conditions.
This Special Issue welcomes articles dedicated to all aspects of evapotranspiration measurements and modeling in agricultural and natural systems. Articles on modeling may focus on but are not limited to mechanistic models like Penman–Monteith and its derivatives, machine learning algorithms like artificial neural networks, and other theoretical or numerical modeling approaches. Papers on field studies should include ET measurements and estimations using methods such as eddy covariance, scintillometer, Bowen ratio, flux-gradient, surface renewal, remote sensing, or other monitoring approaches.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Water is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2200 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
