About the book

Evapotranspiration, which stands for summation of evaporation from the land surface and transpiration from the plants, is one of the key hydrological parameters that play an important role in addressing several water-related problems such as estimating agricultural water consumption, developing water budget, water resources management, and drought monitoring. To date, several empirical relationships are proposed and applied to estimate evapotranspiration based on other hydrological factors such as temperature, wind speed, humidity, etc. All these methods are considered as land-based approaches while using remote sensing techniques for estimating evapotranspiration has attracted a lot of attention in recent years. On the other hand, several studies have been conducted to enhance evapotranspiration modeling techniques. These models are important as they can be coupled with other hydrological models such as rainfall-runoff models, flood forecasting models, and drought prediction models. In this regard, artificial intelligence techniques have attracted a lot of attention due to their strength in mapping associations between inputs and outputs in an intelligent and adaptable way.

This book aims to have an overview of recent advances in estimating, modeling, and applications of evapotranspiration and discuss their impact on the future direction of research on this important hydrological parameter.

About the editor

Amin Talei

Monash University Malaysia

Associate Professor Amin Talei joined Monash University Malaysia in January 2013 and currently is the head of Civil Engineering discipline. His previous appointment was as researcher in School of Civil & Environmental Engineering of Nanyang Technological University of Singapore where he studied for his PhD during 2008-2011. His research is predominantly focused on hydrological modeling and flood forecasting using artificial intelligence techniques. Most recently, he has been also involved in research projects dealing with sustainable urban water management. To date, he has published over 50 articles in reputable journals and international conference proceedings. He has supervised several PhD and Master students and won the Supervisor of the Year Award in Monash University Malaysia in 2017. He has absorbed over AUD370,000 research funding from industry and international/national funding agencies since 2014 and is a chartered professional engineer of the Engineers Australia.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Mr. Mateo Pulko

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
