Short summary
This paper provides detailed documentation on the changes implemented in the widely used biogeochemical model Biome-BGC. The version containing all improvements is referred to as Biome-BGCMuSo (Biome-BGC with multilayer soil module). Case studies on forest, cropland, and grassland are presented to demonstrate the effect of developments on the simulation. By using Biome-BGCMuSo, it became possible to analyze the effects of different environmental conditions and human activities on the ecosystems.
