Net Primary Productivity (NPP) Data Sets

NPP: NPP (net primary production) data from existing field measurements are being compiled for approximately 100 study sites covering several major world ecosystem types. These data are used by global change modelers to develop and validate models of vegetation-soil-atmosphere interactions within the global carbon cycle and to help calibrate remote sensing of vegetation worldwide

All NPP data sets are available FREE of charge. You will need to sign in to order NPP data sets. Currently 82 NPP data sets are available online.
