Atmosphere-Cryosphere Coupled Model for Regional Climate Applications
Comparison of PRCM land-surface scheme (LSS) with the snow land-surface model (SLM).
3-layer soil and one-layer vegetation combined with snow
Multilayer soil and snow, one-layer vegetation
Limited by I.C. availability of soil
Function of snow depth + background albedo
Snow albedo depends on zenith angle, snow depth, and grain size
Snow fraction of vegetation and bare ground
Heat equation explicitly solves for
Heat transfer due to water passing through medium considered
No frozen soil physics
Soil freeze/thaw considered
Liquid water and soil ice can coexist
Single sunlit vegetation
Both sunlit and shaded fractions of vegetation
