Energy balance at the land-surface interface
Keywords:Sensible heat flux, Latent heat flux, Soil heat flux, Net radiation, Energy budget.
A small scale field experiment was conducted at the Indian Institute of Tropical Meteorology (IITM). Pashan Pune and the energy budget at the land surface interface was studied for clear and cloudy days over bare soil. Using instrumented towers, a net radiometer and soil temperature probe all the components of the energy budget. i.e. the sensible heat flux, latent heat flux, soil heat flux and net radiation were measured directly and the energy balance was computed. It is observed that when considered over the whole day, the energy budget is fairly balanced. As a part of energy budget, the Bowen's ratio is also discussed.
