The impact of changing the land surface scheme in ACCESS(v1.0/1.1) on the surface climatology

Eva A. Kowalczyk, Lauren E. Stevens, Rachel M. Law, Ian N. Harman, Martin Dix, Charmaine N. Franklin, and Ying-Ping Wang

Data sets

GPCC precipitation data NOAA/OAR/ESRL PSD

Short summary
This paper compares two ACCESS model versions that differ only in their land surface scheme. Differences in the simulated present-day climate are attributed to differences in the representation of various land surface processes.
