Joint UK Land Environment Simulator (JULES) User GuideΒΆ

The Joint UK Land Environment Simulator (JULES) is a computer model that simulates many soil and vegetation processes. This guide primarily describes the format of the input and output files, and does not include detailed descriptions of the science and representation of the processes in the model.

The first version of JULES was based on the Met Office Surface Exchange System (MOSES), the land surface model used in the Unified Model (UM) of the UK Met Office. After that initial split, the MOSES and JULES code bases evolved separately, but with JULES v2.1 these differences were reconciled with the UM. As of JULES v3.1, a single code repository is used for both standalone JULES and JULES in the UM.
