Short summary
Ten algorithms for estimating DL and one for UL are integrated in a new model (LWRB) and connected to hydrological model JGrass-NewAge. The algorithms are tested against energy flux measurements available for 24 sites in North America to assess their reliability. We evaluated the performances of simplified models (SMs) of DL, as presented in literature formulations, and determined by automatic calibration the site-specific parameter sets for SMs of DL to improve model predictions.
