Model versions

This is a catalogue of Biome-BGC model versions used in Biome-BGC investigations. This catalogue describes and hosts the recently developed Biome-BGCMuSo 4.0 version (User's Guide written by Hidy, Barcza et al. (2016) as well as the "base" model: Biome-BGC version 4.1.1 MPI described by Thornton et al. 2005, modified by Max Planck Institute (Trusilova et al., 2009). See also the official web site of Biome-BGC MuSo for further details.

Biome-BGCMuSo 4.1 180

Biome-BGC is a biogeochemical model that simulates the storage and flux of water, carbon, and nitrogen between the ecosystem and the atmosphere, and within the components of the terrestrial ecosystems (Thornton, 2000). The Biome-BGC was developed by the Numerical Terradynamic Simulation Group (NTSG), University of Montana. Note that the the currently available model version is 4.2 (in 2016).
