Abstract

A numerical one-dimensional model was designed to simulate the diurnal changes of the greenhouse environment. The model consists of: a soil layer, a vegetation layer, an air layer and a cover. The thermal radiative, sensitive, sensible, latent and conductive heat fluxes were modeled in each layer in terms of its unknown temperature and vapor pressure. Models were adopted to simulate each of the greenhouse sublayers and a theoretical method was proposed to describe the water diffusion through stomata as function of the environmental parameters.
