Abstract

Highlights
- A multi-ion rhizosphere model is used in a Monte Carlo upscaling approach.
- The variability of rhizospheric ion concentration changes is modeled.
- Rhizospheric ion concentration changes are compared with measurements.
- The variability of actual nutrient uptake rates of a spruce plot is determined.
