Starting with Version 3.4 there is a new land surface model known as the Pleim-Xiu LSM available in the MM5 system. Pleim and Xiu (1995) described the initial development and testing of this land surface and workshop proceedings provided a basic description of the model and some evaluation (Pleim and Xiu, 2000). A recent journal article (Xiu and Pleim, 2001) presents a more detailed description of the LSM and its implementation in MM5 and further evaluation. This paper outlines some bug fixes, updates, guidance for use, and more evaluation.
