Model Output from the Marine Biology Laboratory General Ecosystem Model (MBL-GEM) for Toolik Lake, 1921-2144, and the Kuparuk River Basin, 1995
Entry ID: ARCSS052

[ Update this Record ]

Abstract: This data set contains model input and output data for four simulations of varying time periods and spatial coverage. The first two simulations are for acidic tussock tundra in the Toolik Lake region of the Kuparuk River watershed for the years 1921 to 2144. Each of these simulations is made up of two parts. The first part is based upon a reconstruction of historical climate variables from 1921 ... View entire text
