WRF 2.2.1 urban canopy model and albedo

Postby PrometeusWillLive » Mon May 18, 2009 2:55 am

Dear all,

Please, confirm an impression that I have. After activating urban canopy model (ucmcall), in module_sf_urban.F , line 407, we can see "CALL read_param".

If my impression is correct, it is calling urban_param.tbl (well, it is also written in line 136 that it calls urban_param.tbl in directory run); and if it is confirmed, it means that all albedo parameters from road, building and roof are extracted from this table.

Nevertheless, if my assumption is correct, albedo values are fixed throughout the year.

Is this correct?

Thanks in advance,
