Abstract

Develops a framework to simulate the function of naturally occurring organic matter in soil and solutions. Presents some field observations to support process formulations and parameter values. Conducts a hypothetical simulation using the model. The simulation was made, not only to develop insight into the biogeochemistry of forest ecosystems, but also to illustrate deficiencies in model formulation and suggest the need for additional quantitative research. -from Authors
