By using the complementary relationship method, we have developed a terrestrial evapotrasnpiration dataset across China. This dataset now covers the period of 1982-2015 with spatial and temporal resolutions of 0.1-degree and monthly, respectively. (Future update for a longer temporal length will be implemented once the forcing is available). The dataset has been fully validated against plot-scale 13 eddy-covariance flux towers and basin-scale water balance results of Chinese 10 major river basins, showing a very well accurancy.
