The Community Atmosphere Biosphere Land Exchange Model (CABLE) (Wang et al. 2001) is a land surface model (LSM) designed to simulate fluxes of energy, water and carbon at the land surface. CABLE has been coupled to the Land Information System (LIS), a flexible software platform designed as a land surface modelling and hydrological data assimilation system (Kumar et al., 2006, 2008), and to the Weather Research and Forecasting (WRF) model (http://wrf-model.org/index.php), a widely adopted regional climate model. We will present preliminary results from CABLE simulations within LIS, and coupled simulations using WRF-LIS-CABLE. We will outline current and future plansusing this modelling system to investigate, in collaboration with the Centre for Australian Weather and Climate Research (CAWCR),
the influence of LAI prescriptions on the terrestrial carbon balance, the quantification of land-atmosphere feedbacks during the Austral summer, as well as investigations on the dynamic interaction between vegetationand increasing greenhouse gas concentrations under a warming climate.
