ForGEM - initialisation of the soil

Jump to: navigation, search


Soil characteristics required are those to determine water availability according to pedotransfer functions (ref Wosten et al. 1999, Wosten et al. 2001), including texture, soil organic matter and bulk density. Although the soil maps of the explanatory variables are available at Alterra, these are not yet in the NetCDF format which is the format of ForGEM input.
