Short summary
Biogenic volatile organic compounds (BVOCs) participate in reactions that can lead to secondarily formed ozone and particulate matter impacting air quality and climate and are important inputs for atmospheric models. BVOC emissions are sensitive to the vegetation species and leaf temperature. Here, we have improved the vegetation data and modeled leaf temperature of the Biogenic Emission Inventory System model. Updated algorithms improved model evaluation against observations in California.
