Parameter Descriptions


ModVege makes use of a sizable number of different variables. Some of them are used as inputs to the simulation, some tune model behaviour and others are the actual state variables of the simulated grassland system.

The following section attempt to provide an as comprehensive as possible list of all of these. For a thorough understanding, the reader is referred to the original publication by [@jouven2006ModelPredictingDynamics].

State Variables

These values evolve during a model run and are stored in the respective fields in the [ModvegeSite] instance that was run.

Initial conditions

Model parameters

Functional group parameters

Weather variables
