This file sets options and parameters for the ECOSSE model of soil biogeochemistry. It is used only if the ECOSSE model is chosen (soil_bgc_model = 3).
Warning
The ECOSSE model in JULES is still in development and is not fully functional in this version. The code is included to allow further development. Users should not try to use ECOSSE.
Type: | logical |
---|---|
Default: | T |
Switch to include soil nitrogen in ECOSSE.
Type: | logical |
---|---|
Default: | T |
Switch to match ECOSSE soil C and N layers to those for soil moisture.
Type: | integer |
---|---|
Permitted: | >= 1 |
Default: | None |
The number of ECOSSE soil carbon layers. Not used if l_match_layers = TRUE.
Type: | real(dim_cslayer) |
---|---|
Permitted: | > 0 |
Default: | None |
Thicknesses of the ECOSSE soil carbon layers (m). Not used if l_match_layers = TRUE. In most cases the total depth must equal that of the soil moisture layers (see dzsoil_io). The exception is the case of a single layer, bulk model (dim_cslayer = 1), for which dz_soilc(1) is interpreted as the representative or averaging depth for the bulk layer (e.g. the temperature of the bulk model is taken as the average over this depth).
Type: | REAL |
---|---|
Permitted: | >= timestep_len |
Default: | timestep_len |
The timestep length for ECOSSE (seconds). The main JULES timestep length timestep_len must be a multiple of this timestep length, so that ECOSSE is called on JULES timesteps. The TRIFFID timestep length triffid_period (converted to seconds) must also be a multiple of the ECOSSE timestep length.
