Abstract

Climate models need information about energy and water fluxes at the soil surface. In Cabauw (Netherlands) these fluxes and the belonging balances are measured. Water balances have been set up for a summer and a winter period to check the correctness of these fluxes. In winter precipitation is the largest input term and outflowing discharge the highest output term. In summer inflowing discharge is the largest input term and evapotranspiration the highest output term.
