Intercomparison of methods for parameterising components of the surface energy balance - a summary of Working Group 1 - COST 710 results
Working Group 1 of COST Action 710 investigated the use of meteorological pre-processors for short-range dispersion models for regulatory purposes. Two commonly used schemes for estimating boundary-layer fluxes from standard meteorological observations were intercompared using high latitude measurements from Sweden for spring/summer and winter conditions. Ground heat fluxes estimated with five different schemes were compared for data measured in Switzerland. The main results of these studies are presented.
