Comparing Surface Height Used in NCAR Climate Model with That Observed by ICEsat: Effects on Skin Temperature Simulation
Sensitivity of offline CLM3.5 simulated Greenland ground temperature (TG) to the surface height (experiment case minus control run, T42 resolution). The 17-year, monthly averaged TG in the experiment case is using ICEsat-observed Greenland surface height. The fields are June, July, and August averages. The color bar is surface height difference (m) and the contour is temperature difference.
