LISVAP, evaporation pre-processor for the LISFLOOD water balance and flood simulation model

Funded under: FP7-JRC

Abstract

This LISVAP revised User Manual documents the LISVAP application. LISVAP is a pre-processor for the LISFLOOD water balance and flood simulation model that calculates estimates of potential evaporation and evapotranspiration for three separate reference surfaces, all based on the Penman-Monteith equation. The results are reported as raster grids that can be readily used as input to LISFLOOD. The first part of this document describes the characteristics of the LISVAP application in detail, focusing on process descriptions and the governing equations. The second part covers all practical LISVAP issues, such as installing the application, setting up the necessary input data and running it.
