Short summary
This study presents and compares two different approaches to using satellite-derived estimates of actual evapotranspiration (ET) to improve the performance of a conceptual rainfall–runoff model. In the first approach, the ET process within the model is constrained using the satellite ET estimates, while in the second one, the model structure is altered. Results indicate that both the approaches improve streamflow forecasting, while the second one also improves the ET simulations significantly.
