NCAR Dynamic Global Vegetation Model


The NCAR Dynamic Global Vegetation Model (NCAR DGVM) consists of a heavily modified version of the Lund-Potsdam-Jena DGVM (LPJ) of Sitch et al (2003) integrated within the CCSM land model.

A manuscript has been submitted to Global Change Biology that describes the DGVM as coupled to NCAR LSM. Click here for a PDF file of the text. Click here for a PDF file containing the figures.
