ISMC - The International Soil Modeling Consortium

ISMC - linking soil modeling experts

The International Soil Modeling Consortium aims to integrate and advance soil systems modeling, data gathering,and observational capabilities, through:

  • bringing together leading experts in modelling soil processes within all major soil disciplines
  • addressing  major scientific gaps in describing key processes and their long term impacts with respect to the different functions and ecosystem services provided by soil;
  • promoting integration of soil modelling expertise in neighboring disciplines (climate, land surface, eco, hydro, and other models)
  • performing soil model intercomparison studies at local to global scales
  • consolidating soil and other data platforms for modeling purposes
  • integrating societal and environmental considerations into soil and ecosystem functioning
