Air and biomass heat storage fluxes in a forest canopy: Calculation within a soil vegetation atmosphere transfer model

Haverd, Vanessa; Cuntz, Matthias Oskar; Leuning, Ray; Keith, Heather


An analytical method for calculating the sub-diurnal change in heat storage in tree trunks is presented and incorporated in a soil vegetation atmosphere transfer (SVAT) model. The modelled change in biomass heat storage (Jtr) is driven by radial heat diffusion within the trunks and surface heat exchange by convection, insolation and longwave radiation. The calculation requires only variables from the previous and current time step and is independent of measured biomass temperature. The model...[Show more]
