  2. METRIC is a computer model developed by the University of Idaho, which uses Landsat satellite data to compute and map evapotranspiration.
  3. Metric: In differential geometry, the notion of a metric tensor can be extended to an arbitrary vector bundle. Specifically, if M is a topological manifold and E → M a vector bundle on M, then a metric on E is a bundle map g : E ×M E → M × R from the fiber product of E with itself to the trivial bundle with fiber R such that the restriction of g to each fibre over M is a nondegenerate bilinear map of vector spaces.
