Abstract:

MACPET: SOFTWARE TO CALCULATE POTENTIAL EVAPOTRANSIRATION (MAA)

MacPet is software that calculates potential evapotranspiration (PET) using a combination method. The software runs on Macintosh computers and all commands and functions are menu and button driven. MacPET can be executed using hourly or daily data to calculate PET and the user has a choice to specify among commonly used units (English and SI). MacPet comes with a user's guide on disk, written in Microsoft Word which will be necessary to view or print the user's guide.
