SORTIE-NDSoftware for spatially-explicit simulation of forest dynamics
Partitioned DBH Biomass
This behavior calculates biomass as a linear function of DBH, partitioned into leaf, branch, and bole biomass.
Parameters for this behavior
How it works
The mass of all components is calculated using the same equation, but using different parameters. The equation is:
The amount of each type of biomass, in metric tons, for each species is saved in a grid called Partitioned Biomass. You can save these values in a detailed output file for analysis. You of course can skip any of the components by entering 0's for their parameter values.
How to apply it
Apply this behavior to saplings, adults, or snags of any species. This behavior does not automatically create output. Once you have added this behavior to your run, the Detailed output grid setup window will list the Partitioned Biomass grid. You can then view the contents of this grid as a table using SORTIE's data visualization system.
