High-resolution sensitivity studies with the regional climate model COSMO-CLM

Cathérine Schädler Meissner, Hans-Jürgen Feldmann Panitz, Christoph Kottmeier
2009 Meteorologische Zeitschrift  
The small differences in soil temperature and soil moisture lead do a non-linear feedback with the development of convection and rainfall, which then leads to an enhancement of differ- ences in soil moisture  ...  In the two upper soil layers, the amplitude of soil moisture change due to rainfall is captured well by both models during winter and spring but the absolute values are too low (Fig. 6.2).  ...
