Definition:
Predicts the fast time scale fluxes of water, carbon, nitrogen and energy
between the landsurface and the atmosphere and the resulting diurnal surface
fluxes, seasonal and inter-annual vegetation growth, and decadal to century
scale alterations in vegetation structure and soil carbon and nitrogen. It
will be made available to the climate modeling community for studies on
seasonal weather evolution, vegetation phenology, the carbon budget, climate
variability, paleoclimate, global change scenarios, vegetation-climate
feedbacks, and astronomical biosignatures.
