Biome-BGC CARBON 1.2

Biome-BGC is a process-based biogeochemical model that can be used to simulate carbon, nitrogen and water fluxes of different terrestrial ecosystems. A new version of the model, called Biome-BGC MuSo was developed to perform more realistic simulations in terms of soil hydrology, and improved ecosystem management options essentially (Hidy et al. 2012; Hidy & Barcza 2014). The Biome-BGC CARBON service executes a single simulation run at a given geographic location under that distinctive environmental circumstances, and for a specified time-span of years, past and/or future climate scenarios and management options.

The simulations require specific inputs like:

- local daily meteorology input dataset - a number of general ecophysiological constants as essential parameters - local site/soil parameters - annual atmospheric CO2 concentration (optional) - annual nitrogen deposition (optional) - output control settings of Biome-BGC variables - spinup and normal initialization settings

The Biome-BGC Project Database & Management System (BBGCDB) was developed to support users to manage various Biome-BGC ecosystem modelling investigations, and to share related input, parameter, initialisation and output files. It provides interaction to the Taverna workflows in a user friendly environment of the BioVeL Portal.

The interaction page provides a user friendly interface to select model version and all the other predefined parameter settings and inputs. Two model versions were implemented: Biome-BGC 4.1.1 MPI (Trusilova et al. 2009) and Biome-BGC MuSo 3.0 (Hidy & Barcza 2014).
