The moisture status of the surface cover in Sicily is monitored by the evaporative fraction, EF. An energy balance modelling is performed in order to describe the energy partitioning at the land surface. Estimates of actual evapotranspiration derived from EF agree well with standard methods and highlight the advantage of using remote sensing data through a significantly improved spatial resolution.
