Goudriaan's crop model is tested for its ability to describe the energy balance of a natural bog vegetation. Data used to drive the model were collected during the summer of 1994. Model results were compared with field data obtained by means of the eddy correlation technique. The present study indicates that the model results are satisfactory as both sensible and latent heat fluxes are overestimated by 6% only. Furthermore, sensitivity analyses have shown that the model results are sensitive to the soil surface resistance to evaporation. Hence, there is a need to incorporate the soil surface resistance to evaporation as a function of time. © 1995 Elsevier B.V.
