Evapotranspiration ET is the sum of evaporation and plant transpiration from the Earth's land surface to atmosphere. Potential evapotranspiration PET is a representation of the environmental demand for evapotranspiration and represents the evapotranspiration rate of a short green crop, completely shading the ground, of uniform height and with adequate water status in the soil profile.

It is a reflection of the energy available to evaporate water, and of the wind available to transport the water vapour from the ground up into the lower atmosphere.
