Short summary
The inclusion of process-based wind-throw damage simulation in Earth system models has been hampered by the big-leaf approach, which cannot provide the canopy structure information that is required. We adapted the physics from ForestGALES to calculate CWS on large scales. The new model included several numerically efficient solutions, such as handling the landscape heterogeneity, downscaling spatially and temporally aggregated wind fields, and downscaling storm damage within the 2500 km2 pixels.
