Short summary
The soil thermodynamics in the IPSL climate model is improved by adopting a common vertical discretization for soil moisture and temperature, by coupling soil heat convection-conduction process, and by computing the thermal properties as a function of soil moisture and texture. The dependence of the soil thermal properties on moisture and texture lead to the most significant changes in the surface temperature, with the strongest effects taking place over dry areas and during the night.
