Catchment Land Surface Model
Entry ID: NASA_CATCHMENT_LSM

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: The one-dimensional framework used by traditional one-dimensional LSMs
(including the Mosaic LSM) is not amenable to an adequate treatment of runoff
generation or subsurface soil moisture movement, since both processes in nature
are largely controlled by spatial heterogeneity in soil moisture. Consider, for
example, that many LSMs coupled to AGCMs effectively consider soil ... View entire text
