Mechanisms linking plant productivity and water status for a temperate Eucalyptus forest flux site: analysis over wet and dry years with a simple model

Pepper, David A.; McMurtrie, Ross; Medlyn, Belinda E.; Keith, Heather; Eamus, Derek


A simple process-based model was applied to a tall Eucalyptus forest site over consecutive wet and dry years to examine the importance of different mechanisms linking productivity and water availability. Measured soil moisture, gas flux (CO2, H2O) and meteorological records for the site were used. Similar levels of simulated H2O flux in 'wet' and 'dry' years were achieved when water availability was not confined to the first 1.20 m of the soil profile, but was allowed to exceed it. Although the...[Show more]
