Abstract: This data set includes output data from the MBL-GEM III model for a typical tussock-tundra hillslope. The model outputs 154 different variables for 20 modeled square-meter plots. Modeled plots are spaced 5 m apart along a 100-m transect parallel to the water flow path down a uniform hillslope covered with tussock tundra. Diverse output variables include photosynthesis and evapotranspiration, ... View entire text
