As part of the Integrated Forest Study (IFS), which was initiated 1986 by Electrical Power Research Institute (EPRI) to evaluate the effects of atmospheric deposition on nutrient cycling in forest ecosystems, the Nutrient Cycling Model (NuCM) has been developped to simulate the processes which influence nutrient cycling in forest ecosystems. These include atmospheric, hydrologic vegetation and soil processes.
