A New Land Surface Hydrology within the Noah-WRF Land-Atmosphere Mesoscale Model Applied to Semiarid Environment: Evaluation over the Dantiandou Kori (Niger)

Table 1

Simulated surface atmospheric variables versus in situ measurements in Wankama: Precipitation, P (mm/day); Relative humidity, Rh (%); 2 m air temperature, Ta (K); downward Shortwave, SW, and Longwave, LW, radiations (W/m²); Wind speed, Ws (m/s). The Mean, standard deviation ( ), Bias, RMSE, correlation (r), and efficiency (Eff) are given for all variables at a 3-hour time step, excepted for precipitation (daily).
