Model Descriptions

Figure 1. Schematic diagram of the 13 models used in the TDE ecosystem model intercomparison, including 8 hourly models, 4 daily models, and one monthly time-step model. The shaded portions of each diagram indicate corresponding functions in the respective models. Light and dark shading of the canopy indicates that sun and shade leaves are simulated. Horizontal lines in the canopy or belowground show the level of vertical detail. All models except one (MAESTRA) are one-dimensional.
