Questions on SHDFAC in Noah LSM

Postby peteron » Sun Nov 14, 2010 11:26 pm

Hi, I have a few questions about how SHDFAC is specified in Noah LSM. Please help me out if you can.

a). Is SHDFAC constant in time for each land type, as specified in VEGPARM.TBL?
I noticed that the green vegetation fraction from Gutman and Ignatov (1998) is a global monthly dataset which would be needed to capture the seasonal variability, especially considering that albedo/emission/roughness is now calculated using SHAFAC.

b). Where (in which files) are SHDMIN and SHDMAX (for each land type) specified?
I searched the code and still donot know how they are put.
