Description (last modified by luyssaert)

With the bug fix in r7161, the cProduct pool is being output again. The spatial patterns for the 1800s look reasonable (highest fluxes in Europe and the Eastern US), but two questions remain:

1) Are the units correct? Doing some back of the envelope checks suggest that the fluxes shown are several orders of magnitude too small.

2) Why is there cProduct flux in year 1 of FG1trans? The short-lived product pool is set to one year, which means everything is decomposed from croplands and grasslands immediately and does not get carried over to the next year (consistent with a flux of 0.0 for cProduct throughout the FG1 simulation). Land use change happens at the beginning of the year. The map changes from 1860 to 1861 with the change from FG1 to FG1trans. Some cProduct flux is present in 1861, the first year of FG1trans. Should there be? Or should it start in 1862?

3) Follow Geosci. Model Dev., 9, 2853–2880, 2016 www.geosci-model-dev.net/9/2853/2016/ to make sure that the output meets the CMIP requirements.
