Dear Dr. McGuire,
I’m a PhD student in Imperial College London supervised by Prof. Iain Colin Prentice. My recent forcus is on simulation of CO2 seasonal cycle amplitude using ‘P model’, and with vegetation and soil carbon outputs from SDGVM.
I found out that at some grid cell the value of vegetaion and soil carbon is extremely small, so I was wondering if the unit of vegetaion and soil carbon ‘kg/m2’ refers to per square meter grid cell, or per square meter land cover? In other words, is the extremely small value comes from the fact that the grid cell is mainly occupied by water or ice etc.? I’d really appreciated it if you could solve my puzzle. Thank you very much!
