Climate data was collected using a meteorological station in Reno, Nevada for the period 3/1/2020 - 4/30-2020. Variables measured were net radiation, wind speed, precipitation, temperature, and relative humidity. These data were used to calculate grass reference evapotranspiration (ETo) using the FAO 56 Penman Monteith hourly method. Two datasets are available. The file “met_station_data.csv” contains station data. The file “reno_et.csv” contains station data sampled to 1 hour and ETo calculated using Penman Monteith. The file metadata provides information on methods used to calculate hourly grass reference ET.
