Improved simulation of poorly drained forests using Biome-BGC
(Tree Physiology, 2007)
Summary Forested wetlands and peatlands are important in boreal and terrestrial biogeochemical cycling, but most general-purpose forest process models are designed and parameterized for upland systems. We describe changes ...
Reimplementation of the BIOME-BGC model to simulate successional change
(Heron Publishing, 2005)
Biogeochemical process models are increasingly employed to simulate current and future forest dynamics, but most simulate only a single canopy type. This limitation means that mixed stands, canopy succession and understory ...
Effects of fire on regional evapotranspiration in the central Canadian boreal forest
Changes in fire regimes are driving the carbon balance of much of the North American boreal forest, but few studies have examined fire-driven changes in evapotranspiration (ET) at a regional scale. This study used a version ...
Fire as the dominant driver of central Canadian boreal forest carbon balance
Changes in climate, atmospheric carbon dioxide concentration and fire regimes have been occurring for decades in the global boreal forest, with future climate change likely to increase fire frequency ? the primary disturbance ...
Simulation of boreal black spruce chronosequences: Comparison to field measurements and model evaluation
(Journal of Geophysical Research, 2006-06-08)
This study used the Biome Biogeochemical Cycles (Biome-BGC) process model to simulate boreal forest dynamics, compared the results with a variety of measured carbon content and flux data from two boreal chronosequences in ...
