1. VIC stands for: *
2. VIC can only simulate land-atmosphere moisture fluxes but not energy fluxes. *
3. VIC is a grid-based model and each grid-cell is simulated independently. *
4. It is NOT possible to include sub-grid scale processes in VIC. *
5. In VIC root zone depths are the same as the model soil layer depths. *
6. VIC includes subsurface flow (baseflow) variations but not deep ground water variations. *
7. Precipitation is one of the parameters that VIC simulates. *
8. VIC can be simulated on these time-scales: *
Required
9. These parameters are part of the meteorological forcing in VIC: *
Required
10. VIC meteorological forcing can be obtained from: *
11. VIC is ideal for simulating water balance at less than 3 km. *
12. MODIS can provide these inputs for VIC: *
Required
13. VIC can be used as a part of a climate model. *
14. VIC can not be used in areas with elevated terrain and can only be used in the tropics since it cannot handle snowfall. *
