Scanlon and Sahu (Water Resour Res 44(10):W10418, 2008) proposed an interesting method to estimate assimilation, respiration, evaporation and transpiration directly using high-frequency eddy-covariance measurements. In this note we critically revise this method and, in particular, using the Descartes’ rule of sign, we show that one branch of solutions can be directly neglected reducing the analytical complexity of the procedure. We also discuss the stability of the results of the method with respect to the input parameters, especially to the water-use efficiency.
