Short summary
A remote-sensing biophysical approach for estimating daily evapotranspiration and carbon uptake was tested at Mediterranean forest and non-forest sites in Israel after accounting for root zone water deficit. A newly developed mobile lab system and an active FLUXNET station were used for validation. The model successfully tracked observed changes in fluxes, showing promise for a reliable ecosystem-level assessment. Changes in water use efficiency due to afforestation were assessed in Israel.
