Model Intercomparison

  • Skin Temperature Intercomparison
    * Available at ARM/CART SIRS stations.
    THESE ARE INSTANTANEOUS VALUES AT EACH HOUR.
    Comments
  • AVSFT(grib # 138) from the model output is used here. Even VIC has PVWM(grib # 139 effective radiative temperature) in the output, we use AVSFT to make consistent with other models.
  • All three panels in one plot have the same sample size.
  • Once GOES or ARM/CART observations are missing, the respective values from model output are ignored.
  • Aerodynamic Conductance, Surface Albedo and Skin Temperature Intercomparison
    * Available at ARM/CART SIRS stations.
