This paper explores the potential to improve spatial estimates of key carbon fluxes by combining Earth Observation data with a simple ecosystem model. Spatial estimates of Leaf Area Index from MODIS at the kilometre scale over a coniferous forest site in Oregon are assimilated into an ecosystem model with an Ensemble Kalman filter. Results show that(More)
—This paper details recent progress in the assimilation of top of canopy reflectance data into an ecosystem model to constrain estimates of net carbon flux. Previous work has demonstrated the feasibility of such an approach but its application at wide spatial scales remains relatively un explored. Two aspects of this are examined in this paper: the(More)
