Example of conceptual land-atmosphere model Land atmosphere interaction – conceptual model exercise Bart van den Hurk (KNMI/IMAU)

Example of conceptual land-atmosphere model Last week Explore the thermal coupling For instance: Look for a relationship between u and skin conductivity that has roughly the same  T a /  t using –  air = 1 (switching off radiation response) –T a -T soil = 10K (initial gradient)

Example of conceptual land-atmosphere model uw / L +  E = E pot s c R =  Ps r P = 0.5  (s) (uw/L + E) ds/dt = (P-E-R)/D Layout of a conceptual land-atmosphere hydrology model Stochastic forcing residual  = evaporative fraction Q* = net radiation  = precip.efficiency  = runoff efficiency D = soil depth L = horizontal length scale uw = wind speed  atm.moisture r, c = coefficients

Example of conceptual land-atmosphere model Stochastic Differential Eq (SDE) G = drift term (gains and losses by P, E, R) gr = random term r = Gaussian number with variance 1 and mean 0 stochastic (forcing) term Discretization and rewriting leads to
