A physically-based model, Energy: Surface Towards Atmosphere (ESTA), was used to model and map the energy and water balances of a heterogeneous land surface in a savanna environment on the southern fringe of the Okavango Delta, near Maun, Botswana. ESTA is governed by remotely sensed values of surface temperature, reflection, and vegetation density. Surface reflectance data from the MODIS sensor aboard the Terra satellite were obtained for the Okavango Delta region for September of 2001.
