Issues and Fixes for version MEGAN3.0
Some issues (and fixes) associated with MEGAN3.0 have been identified.
REQUIRED INPUT VARIABLES for MEGAN3 include:
1. Leaf Area Index of vegetation covered surfaces (LAIv)
2. Growth Forms.
Global data sets with ~1km resolution:
A version with more detailed ecosystems for the rest of the world is under development.
OPTIONAL INPUT VARIABLES (Not required unless you want to include stress responses)
These are netcdf format files with monthly values of gammaSM on a global 0.5 degree grid. They were calculated using the approach described by Jiang et al. Atmos Environ , 2018 https://doi.org/10.1016/j.atmosenv.2018.01.026 and can be input into MEGAN3.
A test case is available and is a good starting point for running MEGAN3.
