CENTURY: MODELING ECOSYSTEM RESPONSES TO CLIMATE CHANGE, VERSION 4 (VEMAP 1995)
Entry ID: century_vemap

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: The CENTURY model, Version 4, is a general model of plant-soil nutrient cycling that is being used to simulate carbon and nutrient dynamics for different types of ecosystems including grasslands, agricultural lands, forests and savannas. CENTURY is composed of a soil organic matter/ decomposition submodel, a water budget model, a grassland/crop submodel, a forest production submodel, and management and events scheduling functions.
