Dynamic Land Ecosystem Model (DLEM)

The DLEM is a terrestrial ecosystem model that couples major biogeochemical cycles, hydrological cyle, and vegetation dynamics to estimate daily carbon, nitrogen and water fluxes and pool sizes.
Components of DLEM
Plant Physiology
Soil Biogeochemistry
Dynamic Vegetation
Land Use & Management
Versions of DLEM
DLEM 1.0
DLEM 2.0
DLEM 3.0
Soil Biogeochemistry
The soil biogeochemistry component simulates N mineralization, nitrification/denitrification, NH3 volatilization, leaching of soil mineral N, decomposition and fermentation.
