    'Staff publications' is the digital repository of Wageningen University & Research

    'Staff publications' contains references to publications authored by Wageningen University staff from 1976 onward.

    Publications authored by the staff of the Research Institutes are available from 1995 onwards.

    Full text documents are added when available. The database is updated daily and currently holds about 240,000 items, of which 72,000 in open access.

    We have a manual that explains all the features

Abstract Models and model chains can provide a powerful tool to evaluate government policies regarding, e.g., nitrogen deposition or climate change. Since decisions based on model simulations can have a major impact on society, it is important to know the accuracy and uncertainty of the model simulations. This report offers an account of the uncertainty in the heart of the model chain of ‘Nature Planner’. This chain consists of a soil model (SMART2), a vegetation succession model (SUMO2) and a plant species prediction model (MOVE4). Uncertainty was introduced in the most important model parameters, as well as two important input maps; a soil map and a groundwater map.
