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 Multi-Biome: Grassland, Boreal Forest, and Tropical Forest Sites, 1939-1996, R1Data Set: NPP Multi-Biome: Grassland, Boreal Forest, and Tropical Forest Sites, 1939-1996, R1
Terrestrial net primary productivity (NPP) estimates are compiled from the literature for 34 grasslands, 14 tropical forest and 5 boreal forest sites. These 53 NPP estimates and associated site climate and biophysical characteristics were reviewed and documented to produce an overview synthesis paper and a series of web pages containing detailed data.
