Modeling the Effects of Irrigation on Land Surface Fluxes and States over the Conterminous United States: Sensitivity to Input Data and Model Parameters

By including irrigation and calibrating the model parameters, simulated evapotranspiration by CLM could be greatly improved.

  • Objective

  • Evaluate and improve irrigation simulations from the Community Land Model (CLM)

  • Approach

  • Assess the performance of the irrigation scheme in CLM4 using different prescribed irrigated area maps

  • Calibrate the related model parameters using observational irrigation water amount from agricultural census

  • Investigate the impacts of irrigation on land surface fluxes and states over the conterminous United States and explore possible improvements

Impact

  • Effects of irrigation on surface energy partitioning appear large and persistent for seasonal to interannual time scales, and more pronounced in dry than wet years

  • CLM4 irrigation amount simulated can be improved by calibrating model parameters and accurately representing the spatial distribution and intensity of irrigated areas

  • Recommend a realistic assessment of irrigation impacts using an earth system modeling approach.
