Short summary
Crop growth and agricultural management can affect climate at various spatial and temporal scales through the exchange of heat, water, and gases between land and atmosphere. Therefore, simulation of fluxes for heat, water, and gases from agricultural land is important for climate simulations. We developed a new land surface model combined with a crop growth model, called MATCRO-Rice. The main objective of this paper is to present the full description of MATCRO-Rice.
