Extended Data Fig. 4

ac, Relationship between daily total latent energy (LE) exchange measured via eddy covariance and midday canopy water content from remote-sensing of VOD for global forest sites (a; n = 4,525 grid cells), broadleaf forest sites (b; n = 1,915 grid cells) and evergreen forest sites (c; n = 2,610 grid cells). Red lines indicate best fits for ordinary least-squares regressions. Note that the canopy water content at each pixel integrates a spatial area that is two orders of magnitude greater than the eddy covariance sites.
