CMDV: Linking measurements and model development and testing

The LBNL component of this project focuses on development of the FATES dynamic vegetation model and its integration with the E3SM land model (ELM). Current work includes development of plant parameterizations appropriate for temperate and high-latitude systems, integration of a full nutrient capability, and representation of complex plant-soil interactions and effects on net C, water, and energy budgets and exchanges with the atmosphere.
