Description: This task group aims to develop model protocols to facilitate multi-model simulations. The work will be carried out in conjunction with the ISI-MIP initiative . The objectives of this TG can be organized in two working steps:
- 1) developing a model protocol for stand-scale/landscape-scale forest models so that interested modelling groups can contribute simulation runs to ISI-MIP and these can be used for PROFOUND activities.
- 2) developing more advanced model protocols that allow for even more standardized/harmonized model comparisons with regard to the choice of parameter values and calibration techniques in cooperation with WG3 of PROFOUND.
Both objectives will be carried out in close cooperation with TG2, which is essential for preparing and harmonizing high quality input data for the models comparison.
Participation: If you are interested in participating in the task group, please contact the task group coordinator directly. If you are interested in the working group in general, please contact the working group leaders.
