This document describes the salient features of the LandMod system, version 2.0. Version 2.0 is the first fully integrated version of LandMod (Fig. 1), and includes enhancements to rectify deficiencies uncovered in version 1.0 (Garman, accepted). An overview of the system is presented first, followed by descriptions of the underlying spatial structure, of the three primary modules (forest dynamics, disturbance, forest management), and of system inputs and outputs. Additionally, a summary of performance assessments and an overview of computer-hardware requirements and processing speed are provided. Equations, parameter values, and data sources are documented in the appendices.
