Forcing is a component for the assimilation of exogenous information in simulation models. Currently it includes algorithms for the periodic update of model state variables based on exogenous leaf area index (LAI) or NDVI data, as well as for automatic parameter optimization based on the simplex method and on the use of exogenous LAI data for the calculation of the value of an objective function.
