Some problem about "SLMO" in LANDUSE.TBL

Postby jason77926 » Fri Oct 11, 2013 1:14 am

Hi everyone:
I have a few questions about "SLMO" in LANDUSE.TBL.

1.
What is real meaning about SLMO, Soil Moisture or Soil Moisture Availability?

2.
Why the SLMO value in dry cropland (.60) is bigger than in Irrigated Cropland (.50) in Winter.

Thanks for your help!

Hi Jason (and others),

Were you ever able to find the answers to your questions, specifically the first one? My initial guess has been that soil moisture is the volumetric fraction of water content within a soil column, and that the availability is related to the soil saturation value, but I'm sure there are better answers out there.

Cheers,
