revious Tree Island Modeling Efforts Previous Tree Island Modeling Efforts • Stothoff model [Ross et al., 2006]: enhanced ET zones superposed on a regional flow • ELM: regional scale modeling (1 km 2 grids); dynamic equations • ELVM [Wu et al., 2003]: regional scale (1 a grids); speciated biomass dynamic ha grids); speciated biomass dynamic equations roxler ann [2005]: annual budgets of • Troxler-Gann [2005]: annual budgets of Phosphorous stocks and fluxes

esearch Objectives/Questions Research Objectives/Questions patial: focus on individual tree islands Spatial: focus on individual tree islands (not regional) emporal: more detail on variability of • Temporal: more detail on variability of hydrology, vegetation, nutrient transport ntra aily daily seasonal multi nnual) (intra-daily, daily, seasonal, multi-annual) • Assessing relative contribution of different processes to stability of nutrient (P) distribution in tree islands: specifically, ET and external (e.g., animal inputs)
