The ORNL DAAC announces the release of a new data set from the Vegetation/Ecosystem Modeling and Analysis Project (VEMAP).
Selected variable output results from the VEMAP Phase I modeling exercise are now available for several combinations of biogeochemistry and biogeography models and climate change scenarios.
VEMAP was an international project studying the response of biogeochemical models and vegetation-type distribution models (i.e., biogeographical models) to variability in climate and to other spatial and temporal factors. Phase 1 compared the results of six models under various climate and vegetation scenarios. Phase 2 compares time-dependent ecological responses of models to historical and projected transient scenarios of climate and atmospheric carbon dioxide.
