Model for WAter and NUtrient dynamics and Erosion in LAndscapes

MANUELA is an attempt to construct a spatially explicit, three-dimensional simulation model for water and matter dynamics in landscapes. It is based on linking one-dimensional MONICA soil columns using algorithms of lateral water and matter fluxes. In addition to this, an erosion model simulates the water and particle movement at the soil surface. MANUELA facilitates the simulation of the effect of erosion on the translocation and biochemical turn-over of carbon on slopes and the consequences for soil water dynamic an crop growth.
