Surface representation impacts on turbulent heat fluxes in the weather research and forecasting (WRF) model (v.4.1.3)
Rights accessOpen Access
The water and energy transfers at the interface between the Earth’s surface and the atmosphere should be correctly simulated in numerical weather and climate models. This implies the need for a realistic and accurate representation of land cover (LC), including appropriate parameters for each vegetation type. In some cases, the lack of information and crude representation of the surface lead to errors in the simulation of soil and atmospheric variables. This work investigates the ability of the Weather Research and Forecasting (WRF) model to simulate surface heat fluxes in a heterogeneous area of southern France
