The SEIB-DGVM is a dynamic vegetation model, which aims to simulate transient impacts of climatic change on terrestrial ecosystem, and land-atmosphere interactions. It contains mechanical-based or empirical-based algorithms for :

1. Land physical processes (hydrogy, radiation, air, etc.)
2. Plant physiological processes (photosynthesis, respiration, growth, etc.)
3. Plant dynamic processes (establishment, mortality, disturbance)

We SEIB-developping-team aim to continuously develop, test and improve the model by gathering interdisciplinary contributions. Hence, we are very welcomed you to take advantages of our model!

SEIB-DGVM is written in Fortran90. We are developing and validating the code under Intel FORTRAN Compiler 11.0 (Linux version). But, we confirmed that the code can also work on G95 (Windows version, g95-MinGW.exe), although it takes much time for compiling the code.
