FASST Vegetation Models Frankenstein, Susan ; Koenig, George

By: Contributor(s): Publication details: Hanover, NH Cold Regions Research & Engineering Laboratory, 2004; Technical report ERDC/CRREL TR-04-25, Description: 56 sSubject(s): Online resources: Abstract: The one-dimensional dynamic state of the ground model FASST (Fast All-season Soil Strength) is a state of the ground model developed by Frankenstein and Koenig (2004) as part of the Army’s Battlespace Terrain Reasoning and Awareness (BTRA) research program. In its original form, the only effects vegetation had on FASST were to change the surface albedo and emissivity. Recently, a two tier, multilayer vegetation algorithm was added. These can be implemented separately or together. Both alter the soil surface energy and moisture budgets. In this report we will discuss the energy balance equations used to solve for the low vegetation, canopy and ground temperatures. In solving these equations, the effects of precipitation interception and soil moisture modification attributable to rootuptake are incorporated.
