In this study we develop a zonally symmetric, synchronously coupled biosphere-atmosphere model including ecosystem dynamics, and apply this model to study biosphere-atmosphere interactions in the region of West Africa. The atmospheric model is zonally symmetric, and includes representation of atmospheric dynamics, a radiation scheme, a moist convection scheme, a boundary-layer scheme, and a cloud-parametrization scheme. The biospheric model is the Integrated BIosphere Simulator (IBIS), which… CONTINUE READING
