Short summary
This work monitors the water consumed by the vegetation in two watersheds of Southern Spain for two years. An approach based on the reference evapotranspiration (ETo) and vegetation indices (VIs)-derived canopy coefficients is used (VI-ETo approach). A spatial analysis of ET of the main vegetation types was performed. The annual runoff, estimated with a simple water balance and using the ET, was similar to that obtained by the HBV model, which reproduces the river discharge at the outlet.
