Hello, Community and everyone!
I am thinking about the input dataset for the urban cooling model.
The reference evapotranspiration dataset is required according to the user guide. The calculation of the cooling capacity index and urban heat mitigation index are based on evapotranspiration.
But in my case, my research area only focuses on the urban area (impervious surfaces), not covers the rural area or non-urban area. For the evapotranspiration products (e.g., MODIS), I think the values in the urban area always be filled(or zero). I hope to know, in this case, the urban cooling model is available or not?is there a significant influence on estimating urban cooling services if only assessing urban areas (almost all evapotranspiration values are zero)? If not available, any solution or alternative methods?
Thank you very much.
