Wang Yongwei,Jiang Weimei,Liu Hongnian. Advanced in Research of Urban Effect Parameterization Scheme on Models of Atmosphere[J]. Advances in Earth Science, 2008, 23(4): 371-381.

Recent developments in the physical mechanism of urban effect on atmospheric movement, how to consider these process in the models of different scale, and the difficulty to further develop the parameterization scheme of urban effect have been presented and classified, and the advantages and weaknesses of each approach have been highlighted. However, there is need to validate further the different urban models available. In particular it is necessary to compare model output with urban surface energy balance measurements. An inter-comparison exercise involving these urban schemes is suggested as an efficient way to assess and improve these models.
