Response of Atmospheric Dynamics to Changes in Surface Conditions
Entry ID: USDA0585

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: "Response of Atmospheric Dynamics to Changes in Surface
Conditions" is a General Circulation Model (GCM) output from
model simulations with various land surface configurations and
boundary conditions. Its purpose is to improve understanding of
the climatological relationship between precipitation
distributions and land surface properties such as soil wetness,
