Welcome

Welcome to the new home pages of WIMOVAC (Windows Intuitive Model of Vegetation response to Atmospheric and Climate Change) at the University of Illinois.

We hope that you will come in and look around our web site and perhaps download some of the free software available here.

WIMOVAC Profile

WIMOVAC is a general model applicable to a wide range of vegetation and soil types and importantly  an experimental tool that managers, students and experimentalists can use easily. Its heart is a modular mathematical model of the carbon balance of vegetation and allows prediction of responses to climate change. Even non-specialist users can vary parameters, numerical assumptions, vegetation, climate and atmospheric variables, and in a straightforward fashion to visualize their outcomes. The models include online documentation describing model assumptions and structures as well has how to operate the software - and what's best of all its FREE and may be redistributed under the terms of the GNU General Public License, published by the Free Software Foundation.

WOFTS

A consortium of researchers has been established to quantify the mechanisms of tree response to elevated CO2 and O3. Including in our remit the molecular and biochemical processes controlling foliar response to altered climatic conditions. WOFTS is the name of the model that we are developing as part of this work.
