ISLSCP II Global Primary Production Data Initiative Gridded NPP Data

Data Set Overview

Data setISLSCP II Global Primary Production Data Initiative Gridded NPP Data
Release date2011-07-01
ProjectISLSCP Initiative II (ISLSCP II)
Time Period1970-01-01 to 1998-12-31


Net Primary Production (NPP) is an important component of the carbon cycle and, among the pools and fluxes that make up the cycle, it is one of the steps that are most accessible to field measurement. Direct measurement of NPP is not practical for large areas and so models are generally used to study the carbon cycle at a global scale. This data set contains 2 *.zip files for above ground and total NPP data.
