The continental thermal energy storage in a zonally Averaged global thermodynamic model
In the climatic model of Adem (1962,63, 64"a), when the first law of thermodynamics is applied to the continents, the equation is simplified considering a balance between the excess of radiant energy and the loss of thermal energy -sensible and latent heat of evaporation- by vertical turbulent transport, neglecting changes of thermal energy by conduction and storage effects.
In this paper we have attempted to show that the continental storage of energy is not negligible. This finding improves the results of continental surface temperature.
This continental temperature is a function of the temperature of the air near the ground, the cloudiness, the albedo, the solar and terrestrial radiation the absortion coefficients In short wave, the storage of energy and the loss or gain of thermal energy by turbulent vertical transport of sensible and latent heat of evaporation.
