The dataset includes 30 minutes values of partitioned evaporation (E) and transpiration (T), T:ET ratios, and other ancillary datasets for three ET partitioning methods viz. Flux Variance Similarity (FVS) method, Transpiration Estimation Algorithm (TEA), and Underlying Water Use Efficiency (uWUE) method for three wheat sites. Three wheat sites had different grazing treatments. For example, Site 1 was Grain-only and Graze-grain wheat for the 2016-17 and 2017-18 growing seasons, respectively. Site 2 was Grain-only wheat for the 2017-18 growing season. Site 3 was Graze-grain and Graze-out wheat for the 2016-17 and 2017-18 growing seasons, respectively.
The grain-only wheat system is a single purpose to produce wheat grains only. Graze-grain wheat system has a dual purpose as it serves as a pasture for grazing cattle from November to February and is used to produce wheat grains later. Graze-out wheat system is also a single purpose crop that is grazed by the cattle for the entire season to solely serve as a pasture.
FVS method performed ET partitioning using the high frequency (10 Hz) data collected from Eddy Covariance Flux stations, located near the middle of each field. The high-frequency data were also processed using the EddyPro software to get good quality estimates of different fluxes at 30-minute intervals. The processed 30-min data were used by TEA and uWUE methods for ET partitioning. Ancillary hydro-meteorological variables including net radiation, air temperature, soil water content, relative humidity, and others, also have been included in this dataset.
The study sites were located at the United States Department of Agriculture, Agricultural Research Service (USDA-ARS), Grazinglands Research Laboratory, El Reno, Oklahoma. All sites were rainfed.
