The Noah Scheme, which is commonly incorporated in WRF, utilizes the Penman equation to estimate potential evapotranspiration (PET). It has 16 soil and vegetation parameters that are employed to estimate soil temperature, soil moisture, snow cover and atmospheric feedbacks (Evans et al. 2005). In Noah; snow, vegetation and soil are all modeled as a single unit (Slater et al. 2007) over the whole grid box. 5 is a sub-global vegetation land surface model (Collins et al.
