Model Output from MBL-GEM III for a Typical Tussock-Tundra Hill Slope, 1921-2100


This data set includes output data from the MBL-GEM (Marine Biological Laboratory General Ecosystem Model) III model for a typical tussock-tundra hillslope. The model outputs 154 different variables for 20 modeled square-meter plots. Modeled plots are spaced 5 m apart along a 100-m transect parallel to the water flow path down a uniform hillslope covered with tussock tundra. Diverse output variables include photosynthesis and evapotranspiration, carbon and nitrogen storage, and soil moisture and respiration, among others. Yearly model results are available for the years 1921 through 2100, with climate drivers based on historical reconstruction of climate and carbon dioxide conditions (for 1921-2000) and two possible future climate scenarios (warmer and wetter climate versus warmer and drier climate, for 2001-2100). Each file included in this 40-file data set contains simulation results for one of the 20 cells for the entire time period, based on one of the two predicted climate scenarios.
