JULES-B1 (formerly JULES_UoE) is a terrestrial biosphere model and is one of the 3 models following the ISIMIP2a protocol which form the base of simulations for the ISIMIP2a permafrost sector outputs; for a full technical description of the ISIMIP2a Simulation Data from Permafrost Sector, see this DOI link: http://doi.org/10.5880/PIK.2018.006

Temporal Resolution Of Input Data: Climate Variables: daily
Temporal Resolution Of Input Data: Co2: annual
Temporal Resolution Of Input Data: Land Use/Land Cover: annual
Temporal Resolution Of Input Data: Soil: constant
Input data sets used
Observed Atmospheric Climate Data Sets Used: PGMFD v2.1 (Princeton)
Emissions Data Sets Used: CO2 concentration
Was A Spin-Up Performed?: Yes
Spin-Up Design: We use the 1901-1910 climate condition, pre-industry CO2 (287.14 ppm), land cover map of 1860 to do an equilibrium run of 100 years with TRIFFID on an equilibrium mode followed by a spin-up until the soil carbon to be equilibrium. Then a simulation from 1861 to 1900 was performed with varied CO2 and land-cover/land-use change, and climate of 1901-1910 cycled. The final transient simulation of 1901-2012 was forced by varied climate, CO2 and land-cover/land-use change.
Natural Vegetation Partition: Dynamic vegetation scheme, 9PFT, PFT can coexist on the same grid cell
Natural Vegetation Dynamics: Competition between natural PFTs is based on a tree-shrub-grass dominance hierarchy
Management & Adaptation Measures
Management: No specific management. Crop area are represented by C3 and C4 grasses
Key model processes
Dynamic Vegetation: Simulated by TRIFFID representing competition between PFTs using Lotka-Volterra equations with net carbon balance as a proxy for population size.
