A locally coupled Single Column Model (SCM) was used for sensitivity analysis and model calibration. The sensitivity analysis was used to identify 32 land-surface parameters which appeared to be more or less sensitive in the locally coupled environment. The multi-objective sensitive analysis shows that the land surface-atmosphere interactions could have significant influences on the model parameter sensitivities. The calibration results suggest that it is crucial to include both land-surface and atmospheric parameters in the calibration of a coupled land surface model.
