内容 研究概要:The existing vegetation/land cover map is created by using NOAA's vegetation index product based on the seasonality of the vegetation formations. Hydrological parameters are assigned to each class by using available global datasets, and potential evaporation is calculated. Natural vegetation is restored based on the relationship between climate and vegetation (of cause it is a challenge to be solved), and it enables to assess the change in potential evaporation due to anthropogenic vegetation/land cover changes. The datasets currently available are limited, and we cannot say that the hydrological processes in global or continental scales are sufficiently understood. The author regards this research as a trial study on the methodology. It is necessary to improve the accuracy of datasets and models with the use of new datasets, including satellite data, that are available in near future.
