Evaluating the performance of Earth System Model simulated vegetation carbon density
This paper systematically evaluates Earth System Model (ESM) performance in vegetation carbon allocation in root or vegetation. Inconsistencies are present, some suggestions for improved parameterization are presented, and a community-wide need to focus on allocation fraction observations is called out. This represents another important benchmarking analysis of ESMs.
