4.26 - Daily Vapor Pressure File (*.vap)
The daily vapor pressure file (*.vap) contains daily vapor pressure in mbars for each climate station
vnyr2, described below. The daily vapor pressure file is used for the Penman-Monteith
and ASCE Standardized Penman-Monteith daily ET methods (
= 3 or 5 in the model control file, Section 4.4).
The data must be in calendar year format. The file must contain data for all years in the simulation between
nyr2, defined in the model control file (see Section 4.4). There must be a one-to-one correspondence
between the climate stations listed in the climate station data file (*.cli) and the climate station data in
the daily vapor pressure file. An example is provided in Appendix A.
