# surface energy budget

I'm give the following data: Q*, QG, QH, QE for a 24-hour period, i'm required to plot these 4 data on the same graph, which I've already done. I'm also required to compute these 24 hours totals

- transfer of sensible heat to the atmomsphere

- transfer of latent heat to the atmosphere

- transfer of water to the atmosphere

-equivalent loss of stored soil liquid water

I'm not sure how to do this. Also, the surface enrgy balance states that Q*=QH+QG+QE, but the data do not satisfy this balance, eg. for hour 00, Q*=-70, QG=-16, QH=-90 and QE=16.

Please help. Thanks
