A numerical and experimental analysis of bare soil resistance in homogeneous and heterogeneous soils
MetadataShow full item record
Resistance terms have been used in many studies to simplify the complex processes associated with water vapor transport across the land-atmosphere interface. Soil resistance, accounts for an additional resistance to evaporative losses associated with a drying soil surface. Early formulations were empirically derived from limited measured datasets, which confines their widespread applicability, but some newer formulations better relate to the physical processes at play. The Tang and Riley (2013) formulation avoids a direct empirical relation between soil resistance and the soil water content at ...
