Short summary
A perennial crop model CLM-Palm is developed, including multilayer structure, phenology, and carbon and nitrogen allocation functions, for modeling an important oil palm agricultural system in the tropical regions. Simulated LAI, yield and NPP were calibrated and validated with multiple sites in Sumatra, Indonesia. The new model allows exploring the effects of tropical land use change, from natural ecosystems to monoculture plantations on carbon, water and energy cycles and regional climate.
