I just have a simple question. When using Noah LSM, I see SHDFAC (vegetation fraction) in the VEGPARM.TBL. In the same time, I see another variable related to vegetation fraction, which is named VEGFRA from static data.

Which is used in the model, SHDFAC from table or VEGFRA from static data? After browsing other questions in the forum, I suppose VEGFRA is used. If so, what's the use of SHDFAC column in the table?

Thank you so much!
