BIOME3: An equilibrium terrestrial biosphere model based on ecophysiological constraints, resource availability, and competition among plant functional types
The equilibrium terrestrial biosphere model BIOME3 simulates vegetation distribution and biogeochemistry, and couples vegetation distribution directly to biogeochemistry. Model inputs consist ofExpand

An integrated biosphere model of land surface processes
Here we present a new terrestrial biosphere model (the Integrated Biosphere Simulator - IBIS) which demonstrates how land surface biophysics, terrestrial carbon fluxes, and global vegetation dynamicsExpand

Methane flux from northern wetlands and tundra : An ecosystem source modelling approach
The magnitude and geographical distribution of natural sources and sinks of atmospheric CH 4 in the biosphere are still poorly known. Estimates of the net contribution from northern wetlands haveExpand

Possible role of atmosphere-biosphere interactions in triggering the last glaciation
We coupled a global biome model iteratively with an atmospheric general circulation model to study the possible role of vegetation in the climate system, at the time of glacial inception 115,000Expand
