Abstract

The biogeochemical processes of carbon (C), nitrogen (N), and phosphorous (P) are fully coupled in the Earth system, which shape the structure, functioning, and dynamics of terrestrial ecosystems. However, the representation of P cycle in terrestrial biosphere models (TBMs) is still in an early stage. Here we incorporated P processes and C-N-P interactions into the C-N coupled Dynamic Land Ecosystem Model (DLEM-CNP), which had a major feature of the ability in simulating the N and P colimitation on vegetation C assimilation. DLEM-CNP was intensively calibrated and validated against daily or annual observations from four eddy covariance flux sites, two Hawaiian sites along a chronosequence of..
