A Modular System for Scalable Ecological Modeling
IEEE Computational Science and Engineering
The power of models that can describe and predict terrestrial ecosystem behavior has advanced dramatically over the last two decades, driven by major improvements in process-level modeling techniques, computing technology, and the availability of diverse data. Success has bred discontent: researchers once satisfied with studying the ecological processes of single plants or small groups of plants now envision models describing regions, continents, or the entire globe. Indeed, scientists ultimately want to model the very large scale terrestrial/atmospheric exchange processes that are crucial to “grand challenge” problems in global ecology.
