Short summary
We evaluated the soil carbon stock estimates of Yasso07, Q, and CENTURY soil carbon models, used in national greenhouse gas inventories in Europe, Japan, and USA, with soil carbon stock measurements from Swedish Forest Soil National Inventories. Measurements grouped according to the gradient of soil nutrient status revealed that the models underestimated for the Swedish boreal forest soils with higher site fertility. We discussed mechanisms of underestimation and further model developments.
