The North American Carbon Program Multi-Scale Synthesis and Terrestrial Model Intercomparison Project

NASA logoNASA Terrestrial Ecology Program

Objective

To improve the predictive capacity of terrestrial biospheric models through a rigorous comparison of model output against observations

Collaborators

Debbie Huntzinger (Northern Arizona University) is the PI, and Kevin Schaefer, Andy Jacobson, Mac Post (ORNL), Bob Cook (ORNL), Anna Michalak (Carnegie) are Co-Investigators

Project Summary

We are running 15 different terrestrial biosphere models using common weather and other inputs and evaluating the model output against observations. We are running global and North American simulations.
