Overestimation of soil moisture in deep layer (100-200 cm) during open-loop

Hi, I am Donghyuck Yoon, a Ph.D. student in UNIST, South Korea.


I tried to run LIS open-loop experiment based on Noah-LSM using GDAS forcing data and evaluated soil moisture contents with GLDAS v 2.1 (0.25 deg, Noah-LSM based).


After a spin-up period, it seems that soil moisture contents were saturated well, as GLDAS level.


However, soil moisture in 100-200cm was continuously overestimated than GLDAS during the open-loop experiment.


It looks moisture contents were "accumulated" to the bottom layer.


So, is there any solution for this situation?


Do I have to add additional observation forcing (e.g., TRMM, GPCP .. )?


Please find the ldt and lis configure settings and figures about simulated soil moisture.


It will be a great pleasure for your answer.
