Title(s):Main Title: Energy balance closure of eddy covariance data: the role of mechanical and thermal turbulence
Description(s):Abstract: This paper presents a multi-site (>20) analysis of the relative and absolute energy balance (EB) closure at European FLUXNET sites, as a function of the stability parameter e, the friction velocity u*, thermallyinduced turbulence, and the time of the day. A focus of the analysis is the magnitude of EB deficits for very unstable conditions. A univariate analysis of the relative EB deficit as function of _ alone (both for individual sites and a synthesis for all sites), reveals that the relative EB deficit is larger for very unstable conditions (e <−1.0) than for less unstable conditions (−0.02 > e ≥−1.0). A bivariate analysis of the relative EB deficit as function of both e and u*, however, indicates that for situations with comparable u* the closure is better for very unstable conditions than for less unstable conditions. Our results suggest that the poorer closure for very unstable conditions identified from the univariate analysis is due to reduced u* under these conditions. In addition, we identify that the conditions characterized by smallest relative EB deficits (elevated overall turbulence, mostly during day time) correspond to cases with the largest absolute EB deficits. Thus, the total EB deficit at the sites is induced mostly under these conditions, which is particularly relevant for evapotranspiration estimates. Further, situations with the largest relative EB deficits are generally characterized by small absolute EB deficits. We also find that the relative EB deficit does generally not correspond to the regression line of absolute EB deficit with the net radiation because there is a (positive or negative) offset. This can be understood from theoretical considerations. Finally, we find that storage effects explain a considerable fraction of the large relative (but small absolute) nocturnal EB deficits, and only a limited fraction of the overall relative and absolute EB deficits.
