Short summary
Land surface models bear substantial biases. To reduce model biases, we apply a simple but efficient bias correction method to a land surface model. We first derive a relationship between observations and model simulations, and apply this relationship in the application period. While the bias correction method improves model-based estimates without improving the model physical parameterization, results do provide guidance for physically based model development effort.
