  abstract = {{The aim of this paper is to improve our understanding and the
representation of hydrological and energetic exchanges between the soil,
the vegetation, and the atmosphere at the continental scale. The soil
hydrology of the land surface scheme Schématisation des Echanges
Hydriques l'Interface entre la Biosphère et l'Atmosphère
(SECHIBA) is improved. It is derived from the physically based
hydrological model of the Centre for Water Resources Research and is
adapted to the representation of soil-plant-atmosphere interactions at
large scale and to the coupling with an atmospheric model. In the new
model, soil-plant interactions result from root-soil moisture profile
interactions, represented on a fine vertical resolution. This allows a
better control of land evapotranspiration by soil-vegetation systems.
SECHIBA in this new version takes into account a subgrid-scale
variability of soil texture. Different possibilities of interactions
between soil and vegetation variabilities allow the representation of
various soil-plant-atmosphere systems. It is shown that the distribution
of vegetation on the soil and the soil texture influence the way in
which soil, plants, and atmosphere interact.
