Abstract

A detailed description of the incorporation of natural vegetation within the larger LUC model framework is given. The approach focuses on first adapting and then coupling three existing vegetation models: BIOME3 (Haxeltine et al., 1996), BIOMEl (Prentice I.C. et al., 1992) and the CBM (Kurz W.A. et al., 1992). Section 1 concentrates on a description of the adaptations made to BIOME3 and BIOMEl and a comparison of the results obtained from a present climate run for Russia, Mongolia and China with the existing LUC natural vegetation data set. The three way model coupling methodology and usage within the larger LUC model framework is given in Section 2.
