Paper Abstract

Drought is one of the major meteorological disasters to agriculture in north China so that the development of methods for effectively monitoring droughts is of great significance to dry land crops. This paper makes analysis of products of energy and water balances retrieved from LAS (Large Aperture Scintillometer) measurements, indicating that the structural parameter of LAS refractive index shows regular difference in daily variation between different weather backgrounds and remarkable difference in sensible heat flux on a seasonal basis, with higher negative correlation between such flux and soil humidity at 0 ~ 50 cm depth.
