Saux-Picart, C. Taylor, and Y. Xue, 2009: The AMMA Land Surface Model
Intercomparison Project. *Bull. Amer. Meteor. Soc.*, (in press). 
In this dataset, each file contains 1 variable for 1 year for one LSM,daily time step. The outputs are available from 2002 to 2007.
File naming convention:
ALMIP_VAR_Exp3_YYYY_LSM_daily.nc
where
VAR=variable name
YYYY=year
LSM=model acronym
daily for daily avegare
for e.g. for ISBA (CNRM) LWnet values:
ALMIP_LWnet_Exp3_2006_ISBA_daily.nc
The units and variables are below:
(variable names are defined on ALMIP site ==> "Outputs" in menu)
Qle             (W m-2)
Qh                ""
SWnet          ""
LWnet          ""
So, if you wish to compute
Rnet = SWnet + LWnet
And daily energy budget is:
Rnet = Qh + Qle + er
(er = Qg and DelSurfStor....should be relatively small most of the time for daily averages).
In terms of hydrology:
Qs                         (kg m-2 day-1 ....i.e.   mm day-1)
Qsb                            ""
DelSoilMoist             ""
Evap                           ""
Rainf                          ""
You can compute total runoff from
Runoff = Qsb + Qs
Water budget is
DelSoilMoist = Rainf - Evap - Runoff
More variables will be added in upcoming months
