Abstract

The numerical solution of a complete surface energy balance model for simulation of heat fluxes and surface temperature under bare soil environment was presented. The surface energy balance model was an essential approach for heat flux and evaporation estimation in applied meterology and hydrology. The iterative computation of Newton-Raphson method was used for the approximation of latent heat flux and surface temperature from the balances. Results proved the validity of the model and method used for the numerical solution.
