NASA-CASA Biosphere Model - Interannual simulations for the 1980's
Entry ID: NASA_CASA_BiosphereModel


Summary
Abstract: The NASA-CASA (Carnegie-Ames-Stanford Approach) model simulates net primary production (NPP) and soil heterotrophic respiration (Rh) at regional to global scales.

Calculation of monthly terrestrial NPP is based on the concept of light-use efficiency, modified by temperature and moisture stress scalars. Soil carbon cycling and Rh flux components of the model are based on a compartmental pool structure, with first-order equations to simulate loss of CO2 from decomposing plant residue and surface soil organic matter (SOM) pools. Model outputs include the response of net CO2 exchange and other major trace gases in terrestrial ecosystems to interannual climate variability (1983 to 1988) in a transient simulation mode.
