Evaluating the impact of urban morphology configurations on the accuracy of urban canopy model temperature simulations with MODIS Monaghan, Andrew J.; Hu, Leiqiu; Brunsell, Nathaniel A.; Barlage, Michael; Wilhelmi, Olga V. (American Geophysical Union, 2014-06-09)Simulations of the urban environment contribute to assessments of current and future urban vulnerabilities to extreme heat events. The accuracy of simulations of the urban canopy can be degraded by inaccurate or oversimplified ...
An Urban Parameterization for a Global Climate Model. Part II: Sensitivity to Input Parameters and the Simulated Urban Heat Island in Offline Simulations Oleson, Keith W.; Bonan, Gordon B.; Feddema, Johannes J.; Vertenstein, M. (American Meteorological Society, 2008)In a companion paper, the authors presented a formulation and evaluation of an urban parameterization designed to represent the urban energy balance in the Community Land Model. Here the robustness of the model is tested ...
