This Landlab tutorial example using radiation and potential evapotranspiration (PET) components.

It uses DEM as input. Outputs are fields of: PET and solar radiation (incoming, net, and relative). Relative radiation is the ratio of shortwave radiation on a sloped surface to shortwave radiation on a flat surface for a given DOY and latitude. This ratio is used to scale net radiation on a flat surface across a watershed as well as to scale PET across the domain. The component offers four different ways of setting PET on flat surface. Options: PET for flat surface can be set using one of the four methods, presented with the same name used in the instantiation of the component.
