The Century Succession extension implements succession with above and below ground carbon and nitrogen. Century has been renamed Net Ecosystem Carbon & Nitrogen (NECN) Succession. User Guides are provided below only for archival purposes.
Brief Description: Aboveground biomass generally follows the behavior of previous Biomass Succession extensions with cohorts that have biomass (g m-2). In addition, below ground processing of Carbon and Nitrogen is simulated following the logic of the Century nutrient cycling model (v4.0).
