This manuscript describes the energy and water components of a new community land surface model called the Joint UK Land Environment Simulator (JULES). This is developed from the Met Office Surface Exchange Scheme (MOSES). It can be used as a stand 5 alone land surface model driven by observed forcing data, or coupled to an atmospheric global circulation model. The JULES model has been coupled to the Met Office Unified Model (UM) and as such provides an opportunity for the research community to contribute their research into world-leading operational weather forecasting and climate change prediction systems. JULES has a modular structure aligned to 10 physical processes, providing the basis for a flexible modelling platform.
