    8 9 In recent generation Earth System Models (ESMs), land-surface grid cells are 10 represented as tiles covered by different plant functional types (PFTs) such as trees or 11 grasses. Here, we present an evaluation of the vegetation cover module of the MPI-12 ESM for present-day conditions. The vegetation continuous fields (VCF) product 13 [Hansen et al., 2003] that is based on satellite observations in 2001 is used to evaluate 14 the fractional distributions of woody vegetation cover and bare… CONTINUE READING
