Predicting impacts of land-surface processes on regional weather


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


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.


Noah-Multiparameterization Land Surface Model (Noah-MP LSM)

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 processe.
