Surface-Atmosphere Exchange In A Box

Observing and mathematically describing our environment provides a foundation for developing sustainable future scenarios. These aim to address crucial socio-economic resources such as water, food and energy security, as well as forecasting of severe weather and climate, and strategies for human health and adaptation (e.g., Pielke Sr et al., 2016). Present-day examples include large-scale missions
