An Urban Parameterization for a Global Climate Model . Part II : Sensitivity to Input Parameters and the Simulated Urban Heat Island in Offline Simulations

Abstract

In a companion paper, the authors presented a formulation and evaluation of an urban parameterization designed to represent the urban energy balance in the Community Land Model. Here the robustness of the model is tested through sensitivity studies and the model’s ability to simulate urban heat islands in different environments is evaluated. Findings show… (More)
