Diurnal (or sub-daily) variations are large in many surface and atmospheric fields such as solar radiation, surface latent and sensible heat fluxes, surface temperature and winds, atmospheric convection, and precipitation. These diurnal variations are especially important in air-land and air-sea interactions, which are highly non-linear and thus can not be resolved using daily mean values. Current regional and global climate models still have difficulties in simulating the diurnal variationsdoi:10.1175/1520-0442(2004)017<0930:tdcaid>2.0.co;2 fatcat:upqyjualprfjhhcz7x43hpqyf4
