Large-eddy simulations of surface roughness parameter sensitivity to canopy- structure characteristics

Abstract

Surface roughness parameters, namely the roughness length and displacement height, are an integral input used to model surface fluxes. However, most models assume these parameters to be a fixed property of plant functional type and disregard the governing structural heterogeneity and dynamics. In this study, we use large-eddy simulations to explore, in… (More)
