CENTURY_Rowe_daily - PLM_22

<em>"The CENTURY model is a general model of plant-soil nutrient cycling which is being used to simulate carbon and nutrient dynamics for different types of ecosystems including grasslands, agricultural lands, forests and savannas.  CENTURY is composed of a soil organic matter/ decomposition submodel, a water budget model, a grassland/crop submodel, a forest production submodel, and management and events scheduling functions. It computes the flow of carbon, nitrogen, phosphorus, and sulfur through the model's compartments. The minimum configuration of elements is C and N for all the model compartments. The organic matter structure for carbon(C), nitrogen(N), phosphorus(P) and sulfor(S) are identical; the inorganic components are computed for the specific inorganic compound." 	</em>[Source: CENTURY 4 home page: http://www.nrel.colostate.edu/projects/century/] 	This Simile implementation of the CENTURY model was made by Ed Rowe based on a Stella re-implementation of the soil component of the CENTURY model made by Georg Cadisch. The unit of time is <strong>day</strong>.   Note that no check has been made of the correspondence between these models and any of the official implementations. <br><br><strong>Related Publications</strong><br>Parton, W.J., Schimel, D.S., Cole, C.V. and D.S.
