Abstract:

EDYS Ecological DYnamics Simulation Model is a general ecosystem simulation model that is mechanistically based and spatially explicit. The model simulates natural and anthropogenic-induced changes in plant, soil, animal, and watershed components across landscapes, at spatial scales ranging from 1 m2 or less to landscape levels 103 km and larger. It is a dynamic model that simulates changes on a daily basis over periods ranging from months to centuries. EDYS has also been linked with groundwater MODFLOW and surface runoff GSSHA, CASC2D, HSPF models to provide integrated watershed management simulation systems.
