    Abstract

    Some misconceptions in the use of the triangle method for remotely estimating surface soil water content and surface evapotranspiration are described. With the correct interpretation of the geometry, simple solutions for surface soil moisture and evapotranspiration fraction can be obtained. In this paper, some possible misinterpretations are pointed out in the application of the triangle method, and it illustrates the use of both simple and complex formulations to obtain solutions is also illustrated.
