Prentice IC, Cowling SA, 2013, Dynamic Global Vegetation Models, Encyclopedia of Biodiversity: Second Edition, Pages: 670-689, ISBN: 9780123847201

© 2013 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved. Dynamic global vegetation models encapsulate our knowledge of plant and ecosystem function. They have many potential applications but not all of these are well developed, and large differences among model predictions are a concern. Fields of application include analysis of land-atmosphere biophysical interactions, carbon and water cycling, climate impacts on vegetation structure, fire, atmospheric trace gas composition, Quaternary vegetation and environmental changes, and ecosystem structure and function through Earth history. There is scope to improve models using a wider range of information from plant functional ecology, ecophysiology, environmental remote sensing, and atmospheric measurement, Quaternary paleoecology, and paleobotany.

Zaehle S, Prentice C, Cornell S, 2011, The evaluation of Earth System models: Discussion summary, Pages: 216-221

Complex Earth system models, and their various sub-components, are not yet subject to rigorous evaluation against observations as much as they should be, despite the existence of hundreds of proposed diagnostics. A concerted process is urgently needed to make this the norm, not the exception. Earth Observation, field observations and palaeo data can be applied to contexts as diverse as wildfire, marine ecosystems, the land carbon cycle, and greenhouse gases. Model evaluation (by comparing models and benchmark data) and model weighting (defining the 'quality' of models on the basis of such a comparison) should be considered as separate issues. Systematic approaches to parameter optimization, such as the adjoint technique, allow structural differences between models to be identified and limitations to be addressed. Such methods are established in atmospheric tracer transport and carbon cycling; research carried out in the QUEST programme has demonstrated their applicability for climate modelling. Although it is impossible to devise a foolproof metric for the ability of models to predict the future, relevant metrics could be based on their ability to simulate the past. Furthermore, it should be possible to extend parameter optimization techniques to assimilate data from the past. There are limits to what can be achieved by benchmarking against a mean state, when it is a change in state that is of greatest interest. It is useful to benchmark individual processes rather than aggregate properties. Coupling good components does not automatically result in a good Earth System model, so for complex models, a two-stage process is needed: first, benchmarking the components in stand-alone mode, and second, using the same benchmarks in coupled mode. © 2010 Published by Elsevier Ltd.
