Project: NET PRIMARY PRODUCTIVITY (NPP)Project: NET PRIMARY PRODUCTIVITY (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
Data Set: NPP Tropical Forest: Luquillo, Puerto Rico, 1946-1994, R1Data Set: NPP Tropical Forest: Luquillo, Puerto Rico, 1946-1994, R1
This data set contains ten ASCII files (.txt format), one NPP file for each of the nine different montane tropical rainforest sites within the Luquillo Experimental Forest (LEF) of Puerto Rico and one file containing climate data. The NPP study sites are located along an environmental gradient of different soils, elevation (100-1,000 m), develop stage, and mean annual rainfall. Field measurements were carried out from 1946 through 1994.
