The effect of elevation and meteorological elements is analyzed in Jeju Island for analysis of evapotranspiration with two different height observation station during 3 years data. The slope of temperature gradient recorded $1.30^{\circ}C$/100 m from the analysis of temperature data. There is much difference evapotranspiration between low elevation and high elevation station because of decrease solar radiation and wind speed with height increase. The evapotranspiration is observed by mini lysimeter at Hankukgonghang. The result of observation is presented 34.2% of global solar radiation changed into evapotranspiration during 4 clear days.
