Figure 1

(a) The topography height of the nested domains and (b) the land use category of the inner domain. The rectangle in (a) indicates the location of inner domain. The solid line in (b) indicates the route of the vertical cross section made from point A to point B given in Figures 68 and Figures 1115, and the point O located at the border of land and sea is used as the reference point (0,0) in the vertical cross section. The black dots in Figure 1(a) indicate the location of the five meteorological stations used to validate the WRF simulation.
