Résumé
Recent increase in availability of flux tower measurements opened new possibilities for validation of land surface schemes. Unlike conventional measurements (e.g. 2 meter temperature, relative humidity), the surface fluxes provide better handle on the actual representation of physical processes in the model. In this document we describe the work that was carried out to create a verification dataset of in-situ observations from a number of flux tower networks (FLUXNET, CEOP, SMOSMANIA, BERMS) and demonstrate the potential use of this data in a comparison with ERA-Interim model outputs.
