  author={Yinghai Ke and Lai-yung Ruby Leung and Maoyi Huang and A. Michael Coleman and Hongyi Li and Mark S. Wigmosta},
There is a growing need for high-resolution land surface parameters as land surface models are being applied at increasingly higher spatial resolution offline as well as in regional and global models. The default land surface parameters for the most recent version of the Community Land Model (i.e. CLM 4.0) are at 0.5 ◦ or coarser resolutions, released with the Community Earth System Model (CESM). Plant Functional Types (PFTs), vegetation properties such as Leaf Area Index (LAI), Stem Area Index… CONTINUE READING
