Main modifications from DNDC V89 include (i) translation from VCC to C++ (to run on linux/unix stations); (ii) re-organization of GIS input files; (iii) weather data are stored as binary data files
Downscaling of CAPRI regional data to the HSMU level according to Leip et al. 2008.
For each calculation unit, the difference of direct N2O fluxes (BIOF_gross) is calculated against a reference land use. As reference land use (and reference N2O fluxes) fallow land is used.
Input data for DNDC-simulations generated with the DNDC-CAPRI meta-model at HSMU level and aggregated to NUTS2 regions.
The data are stochastic simulations of seven soil properties (pH, organic carbon, clay, sand, bulk density, total nitrogen and thickness) for the A, B and C horizons at 450 sites within EU25+5.
Land usd / cover was assigned to NCU's based on CLUE Model results aggregated to 4 land use classes for the years 2000 and 2030
NitroEurope Classification Units are multipart polygons sharing the same administrative unit (NUTS2 or NUTS3), the same soil (SGDB classification), the same slope data (CCM DEM 250 in five classes)
