observed throughout the world including over the European Alps ( García-Díez et al. 2013 ) and the continental United States ( Wyszogrodzki et al. 2013 ). Over the interior western United States, several studies identify an underprediction of the 2-m diurnal temperature range (DTR) with a warm (i.e., positive) 2-m temperature bias at night and in the early morning and a cold (i.e., negative) 2-m temperature bias in the afternoon. These biases, which are frequently >1°C, are found for a wide range of

observed SEB components over the Svalbard Archipelago in the Arctic Ocean north of Europe, identifying overpredictions of R n and the Bowen ratio, which they attributed to an underprediction of cloud cover and soil moisture, respectively. A major source of uncertainty with such validation studies, however, is that SEB observations do not close (i.e., R n > H + LE + G ) because of the presence of a residual error term ( Foken 2008 ). This study focuses on the SEB components and associated

on the indicated day) to encompass the full nocturnal period. To investigate a possible connection between LTF occurrences and synoptic or mesoscale conditions, ERA-Interim reanalyses and additional observations at DPG were used. The ERA-Interim, a global reanalysis dataset operated by the European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts, is run with 60 vertical levels and a reduced Gaussian grid with 79-km spacing for surface and other gridpoint fields ( Dee et al. 2011 ). Using the ERA
