Simulation of the effects of photodecay on long-term litter decay using DayCent

Chen , Maosi; Parton , William J; Adair, Carol; Asao, Shinichi; HARTMAN, MELANNIE D.; Gao, Wei


Recent studies have found that solar ultraviolet (UV) radiation significantly shifts the mass loss and nitrogen dynamics of plant litter decomposition in semi-arid and arid ecosystems. In this study, we examined the role of photodegradation in litter decomposition by using the DayCent-UV biogeochemical model. DayCent-UV incorporated the following mechanisms related to UV radiation: (1) direct photolysis, (2) facilitation of microbial decomposition via production of labile materials, and (3)...[Show more]
