Net Primary Productivity (NPP)

Overview

The ORNL DAAC Net Primary Production (NPP) data collection contains field measurements of biomass and estimated NPP for approximately 100 terrestrial study sites worldwide, compiled from published literature and other extant data sources. Some combination of above-ground annual peak live biomass data and/or seasonal biomass dynamics data is available for all sites. Many sites also have data on below-ground biomass and/or turnover. A number of previously compiled multi-site, multi-biome data sets of georeferenced NPP estimates are also provided in this collection.
