[1] This study addresses the land-atmospheric coupling strength by using long-term AmeriFlux data from a wide range of land covers and climate regimes to reconstitute the surface exchange coefficient, Ch, which governs the total surface heat fluxes. For spring and summer, results show stronger coupling for tall canopy with Ch values ten times larger than for shorter vegetation. Observed Ch are then compared to values from the Noah land model. Results indicate that Noah underestimated… CONTINUE READING
