Overview

The Soil and Vegetation Working Group Provides a platform to discuss issues related to the land surface component of the COSMO-CLM model. The main objectives of the Working Group are

  1. to contribute to the further development of the land surface component and

  2. to better understand the interactions between the land surface and other components of the climate system.

This requires close collaborations with other working groups.

The Soil and Vegetation Working Group usually meets twice a year:

  • once at the annual CLM-Community Assembly

  • once during the COSMO / CLM seminar in DWD Offenbach.

Urban Model Intercomparison Project (URBMIP)

The regional non-hydrostatic climate model COSMO-CLM is increasingly used on the fine spatial scales of 1-5 km. Such applications require a detailed differentiation between the parameterization for natural and urban land uses. Since 2010, three parameterizations for urban land use have been incorporated into COSMO-CLM: Terra-URB (KUL), TEB (DWD), and DCEP (PIK). These parameterizations vary in complexity, required city parameters, and their computational cost.

The intercomparison project performs model simulations with the COSMO-CLM that are as similar as possible apart from their urban parameterizations. Currently, their performance has been evaluated for the larger area of Berlin (Germany) on a 1 kilometer resolution (Trusilova et al., 2015, in press in MZ). A similar experiment was setup for Basel (Switzerland), but this work is currently on hold.
