The SPARSE model for the prediction of water stress and evapotranspiration components from thermal infra-red data and its evaluation over irrigated and rainfed wheat. Hydrol. Earth Syst. Sci., 19(11): 4653-4672.
The SPARSE model is coded in Matlab language; it computes the energy budget components for two sources (soil and vegetation) from surface (Leaf Area Index, vegetation height) and meterological forcing data.
