Abstract: The performance of the Canadian Land Surface Scheme (CLASS) was assessed using meteorological observations from stations located in a potato field during a whole season in 2007, and from tuber initiation to tuber bulking in 2010. The scheme’s performance has been evaluated for both the energetic and hydric balance. Over the two seasons, CLASS overestimated the latent flux and generated a ground heat flux of higher amplitude compared to the observed one. The evapotranspiration and the drainage generated by CLASS were then compared to those of BV3C, a submodel of the hydrological model HYDROTEL. BVC3 seemed to have produced an overestimated evapotranspiration, which the dynamics did not match with those of the observed one. Finally, both CLASS and ISBA, an other land surface scheme in use in Canada, were run with data derived from the regional product of the global environmental multiscale model, for the same location. During this test, ISBA showed a higher flow than CLASS. ISBA also showed little quantity of drained water in disagreement with the available observations.
