Predicting impacts of land-surface processes on regional weather

Challenge

To improve deficiencies identified in treating interactions among vegetation, soil, hydrology, snow, and long-term soil state evolution in the current Noah Land Surface Model.

Solution

NOAH Multi-Parameterization Land Surface Model.
NCAR is collaborating on the development of the advanced Noah-MP land surface model (LSM) which uses multiple physics options for key land-hydrology processes.

Benefits

This technology is an important component of advanced weather and hydrological prediction.
