The land surface model JULES includes the full hydrological cycle and vegetation effects on energy, water and carbon fluxes. However, it only simulates land surface processes in natural ecosystems. A dynamic crop growth structure and some model adaptations have been implemented within JULES: JULES-SUCROS. JULES-SUCROS has been validated against CarboEurope flux data in 3 geographically distinct regions in Europe. With JULES-SUCROS as tool, the effects of crop growth on the land surface have been compared to grass under current and changed atmospheric conditions. JULES-SUCROS improves the simulations of crop growth, energy and water fluxes over Europe, compared to the original land surface model JULES. Simulations with JULES-SUCROS show that land-atmosphere interactions are strongly affected by vegetation type and dynamic. Therefore, including a dynamic crop growth structure, such as JULES-SUCROS, within a GCM is likely to improve weather and climate simulations and so to help to better understand the interactions between crop growth, land and climate systems.",
