Understanding the Effect of Revegetated Shrubs on Energy, Water and Carbon Fluxes in a Desert Steppe Ecosystem Using STEMMUS-SCOPE Model


This study evaluated the effects of revegetation on the energy, water and carbon fluxes in a desert steppe in Yanchi County, Ningxia Province, Northwest China, by simulating two vegetated scenarios (shrubs-grassland ecosystem and grassland ecosystem) using STEMMUS-SCOPE model. The model was calibrated and validated by field observations from May to September of 2016-2019. The simulated energy, water and fluxes in 2016 (dry) and 2019 (normal) were compared to analyze the difference between two vegetated scenarios.
