Title(s):Main Title: Water cycle processes and land-atmosphere interactions in multi-scale regional climate change simulations with the WRF atmospheric model over Europe in the context of the WCRP Euro-CORDEX initiative, Report 4
Subtitle: 1 Analysis on the influence of individual land surface properties resolution
Description(s):Abstract: The comparison of the WRF evaluation simulations for Middle Europe with 12 km and 3 km grid size showed differences in several variables. Added value of the higher resolution was found especially for precipitation. In the convection permitting 3 km resolution the positive mean precipitation bias is reduced, and the observed intensity distribution is simulated much better. The positive precipitation bias results from too much light precipitation in the 12 km simulation while the extreme events are underrepresented. The differences between both runs most likely result from better resolving of atmospheric processes in the 3 km simulation, especially the explicit simulation of the deep convection that is parametrized in the coarse 12 km simulation. Also the higher resolution on the land surface (soil type, vegetation type and orography) affect the results by better representation of the real heterogeneous land surface and thereby flux partitioning of latent and sensible heat fluxes, local wind systems, runoff, soil water storage, surface and soil temperature. The following sensitivity study investigates the resolution effect of the individual land surface properties. Five simulations have been run each with the same setup of the atmosphere in 3km resolution but with different combinations of land surface properties in coarse 12km resolution.
