–Nevada border are annotated for reference. In SM-Albedo, we also reduced the saturation vapor pressure over the playa because the very high salinity of the playa has a strong impact on the evaporation rate and LE, but this effect is not parameterized in the Noah LSM. Salinity reduces the osmotic potential at the soil surface and increases the resistance to water vapor diffusion as a result of the occasional formation of a salt crust ( Fujimaki et al. 2006 ). The complex parameterizations that capture these
