DSSAT Mailing List

A mailing list for DSSAT users and others interested in crop model development, crop model applications and decision support systems has been established at the University of Georgia and is being mirrored at Google Groups. Please feel free to share general questions, concerns, successes, messages and thoughts related to DSSAT and its application to the DSSAT Listserv.  We currently have more than 20,200 unique e-mail addresses on the DSSAT listserver for people who are interested in crop modeling and decision support systems. For specific DSSAT problems and errors, please use “Contact Us” to avoid unnecessary e-mail clutter.

  • Two 24 months post doc positions to work on crop and grass management in the ORCHIDEE model
    by Bertrand Guenet on May 28, 2024 at 9:00 am

    Dear all,sorry for any cross-posting. As part of the EU-funded MRV4SOC project,we are offering two 24-month post-doc positions to improve therepresentation of agroecosystems in the ORCHIDEE land surface model. Thefirst post-doc will work on cropland and the second on grassland. Theaim is to improve the representation of management techniques formitigating climate change, in particular through carbon sequestration insoils. The results of the simulations will be compared with the dataobtained on the experimental sites involved in the project. The hostlaboratory will be the geology laboratory at the ENS in Paris (France),with [...]
