Three different land surface models including Biosphere-Atmosphere Transfer Scheme (BATS),Land Surface Model (LSM) and Common Land Model (CoLM),were compared in off-line simulation study based on the same forcing dataset observed at 99 stations in Xinjiang Province,China. The simulated results showed that there were quite differences for absorbed solar radiation,sensible heat flux,latent heat flux,Bowen Ratio and soil temperature. Among these results,the values for solar radiation,sensible heat flux and soil temperatures obtained from CoLM were larger than the other two. The latent heat flux had increased in Xinjiang Province from 1960 to 2005 and the three simulated results were in the same shape. At last,the land surface models were verified through the dataset of the observed soil temperature. The soil temperature result from BATS was very close to the observed one,which was 1℃ lower,but the ones from other models were 2～3℃ higher. For temporal characteristics,the correlation coefficient from CoLM for the interannual trends between soil temperature and observations had the highest value of 0.877. For spatial characteristics,comparing with the soil temperature and the observed data,the results from BATS was lower,but the one from CoLM was higher in the north of Tianshan Mountain,Xinjiang Province. However,the spatial distribution curve from LSM was in good agreement with the observed land surface temperature curve. These results will provide some important references for researching the land surface process in Xinjiang.
