Relationships among mean daily maximum-, mean daily minimum-, mean daily average-, absolute highest-, absolute lowest temperature (°C) versus elevation (m) were determined for January through December for Puerto Rico. These relationships were found to be linear, Y = A + BX. The coefficient of correlation varied from —0.43 to —0.96. Examples are presented to estimate potential evapotranspiration (PET) and to develop PET model as a function of incident solar radiation and elevation.
