Short summary
The core of every climate model is the solution of the surface energy balance. Numerical approaches are mandatory to calculate the land's response to solar input. However, different numerical approaches should not affect the physical results. Here we develop a physical approach that determines how the available energy is divided into radiative and heat fluxes. A key element of this scheme is the inclusion of different types of heat storages in the canopy layer.
