of this paper. Which set of variables should be used for the handoff of climate information from the climate model to a hydrologic model? Commonly, precipitation and near-surface air temperature are used, and the change in potential evapotranspiration rate for the hydrologic model is then computed from the change in temperature; potential evapotranspiration is a conceptual variable whose use simplifies the treatment of surface energy balances in hydrological models. The computation of change

, such as the application of gridded model inputs ( Koren et al. 2004 ; NWS 2011 ). The HL-RDHM is grid based and employs a conceptual rainfall–runoff model to perform the water balance functions for each grid, including meeting potential evapotranspiration (PET) demands ( NWS 2011 ). The PET data implemented in the HL-RDHM are based on climatological potential evaporation (PE) values estimated from the seasonal and annual free water surface maps and mean monthly station data from National Oceanic

1. Introduction Potential evapotranspiration (PET) is defined as the maximum ability to evaporate under the assumption of a well-watered surface ( Thornthwaite 1948 ; Brutsaert 1982 ; Shuttleworth 1993 ). Accurate and timely estimates of PET are essential for agricultural and water resource planning as well as for understanding the impacts of climate variability on terrestrial systems. Our efforts are also motivated by the need for reliable estimates of PET as an input for hydrologic modeling
