    The soil moisture-vegetation-precipitation feedback at the seasonal time scale can play a critical role in the North American seasonal climate. To investigate such feedback mechanisms, we first incorporate into the land model (CLM) the vegetation phenology scheme, which can simulate the seasonal variation of vegetation in response to hydrometorological conditions. The modified land model is validated against the remotely-sensed MODIS LAI observations. Using the coupled land-atmosphere model CAM-CLM that includes the modified land model, a series of ensemble simulations are performed to examine how initial soil moisture anomalies influence the subse¬quent precipitation at the seasonal ...
