ISBA (Soil-Biosphere-Atmosphere Interaction) is a land surface scheme developped in CNRM by the team working on meso-scale modelling (GMME). There is now a CO2-responsive version, called ISBA-Ags, and an externalized version (SURFEX) is currently being developped. At present, the ISBA version that is implemented in the ARPEGE-Climat model is relatively simple with only 2 hydrological soil layers. The GMGEC group also contributes to the ISBA developpement by :
¤ introducing a simple parameterisation of the snow cover (Douville et al., 1995).
¤ developping sub-grid effects on hydrological processes (Decharme and Douville, 2006).
¤ implementing the ISBA-Ags version and a complete carbone cycle (Gibelin et al., 2006)
¤ validating ISBA at the global scale, with a particular emphasis in comparing runoff over large basins with river runoff measurements (use of the TRIP river routing model), in the context of GSWP-2.
