    Hydrological processes on the land surface play a critical role in physically based hydrological and atmospheric modelling. A series of experiments have been initiated to test and develop parametrizations of spatial heterogeneity on the full range of spatial and temporal scales considered relevant. The methodology followed in these experiments is to combine small-scale measurements of energy partitioning at a few relevant typical vegetation types with larger-scale measurements obtained by aircraft and remote sensing and compare these with modelling results. The resulting improved understanding should help to include subgrid variability in large-scale hydrological and atmospheric models in a more realistic way.
