Exploring sensitivities of latent heat parameterizations using a coupled, integrated hydrologic model
Evapotranspiration and its energy counterpart latent heat flux are critical components of the terrestrial water and energy balances. Precipitation, runoff, condensation and groundwater flow are also significant members of the hydrologic cycle, but it is evapotranspiration that links water in the subsurface to water on the land surface or in the atmosphere. Hydrologic models use parameterizations to represent the physical and physiological processes of evaporation and transpiration, respectively. These parameterizations assume some mathematical structure and require that values of certain parameters ...
