The diffusion radiation feedback was analyzed in the terrestrial exchanges in Naoh LSM and cloud coupled WRF model, to better represent the land-atmospheric interactions. It was observed that an increase in aerosols loading could lead to more diffusion radiation in the atmosphere. it was also observed that the impact of clouds, areosols and particles can affect the radiative flux at the top of the atmosphere. It was found that the changes in the diffusion radiation fraction have the potential to impact the efficiency of the canopy exchanges.
