Modeling the Surface Energy Balance of the Core of an Old Mediterranean City : Marseille

  title={Modeling the Surface Energy Balance of the Core of an Old Mediterranean City : Marseille},
  author={A. Lemonsu and C. S. B. Grimmond and Val{\'e}ry Masson}
The Town Energy Balance (TEB) model, which parameterizes the local-scale energy and water exchanges between urban surfaces and the atmosphere by treating the urban area as a series of urban canyons, coupled to the Interactions between Soil, Biosphere, and Atmosphere (ISBA) scheme, was run in offline mode for Marseille, France. TEB’s performance is evaluated with observations of surface temperatures and surface energy balance fluxes collected during the field experiments to constrain models of… CONTINUE READING
