NPP Tropical Forest: Maui, Hawaii, U.S.A., 1996-1997, R1

Data Set Overview

Data setNPP Tropical Forest: Maui, Hawaii, U.S.A., 1996-1997, R1
Release date2013-10-17
ProjectNet Primary Productivity (NPP)
Time Period1996-01-01 to 1997-12-31


This data set contains one data file (.csv format) that quantifies net primary productivity (NPP) as a function of rainfall in mesic to wet montane rainforests on the island of Maui, Hawaii, U.S.A. The NPP data were collected at six mature forests stands that comprise the Maui Moisture Gradient, a sequence of sites located on Maui where mean annual precipitation ranges from 2,200 mm to 5,050 mm while temperature and all other state factors (parent material, substrate age, organisms, and topography) that control NPP remain relatively constant.

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
