A global overview of drought and heat-induced tree mortality reveals emerging climate change risks for forests
Greenhouse gas emissions have significantly altered global climate, and will continue to do so in the future. Increases in the frequency, duration, and/or severity of drought and heat stress
Improvements to a MODIS global terrestrial evapotranspiration algorithm
Abstract MODIS global evapotranspiration (ET) products by Mu et al. [Mu, Q., Heinsch, F. A., Zhao, M., Running, S. W. (2007). Development of a global evapotranspiration algorithm based on MODIS and
A Continuous Satellite-Derived Measure of Global Terrestrial Primary Production
A new satellite-driven monitor of the global biosphere that regularly computes daily gross primary production and annual net primary production at 1-kilometer (km) resolution over 109,782,756 km2 of vegetated land surface is introduced.
FLUXNET: A New Tool to Study the Temporal and Spatial Variability of Ecosystem-Scale Carbon Dioxide, Water Vapor, and Energy Flux Densities
FLUXNET is a global network of micrometeorological flux measurement sites that measure the exchanges of carbon dioxide, water vapor, and energy between the biosphere and atmosphere. At present over
Climate-Driven Increases in Global Terrestrial Net Primary Production from 1982 to 1999
It is indicated that global changes in climate have eased several critical climatic constraints to plant growth, such that net primary production increased 6% (3.4 petagrams of carbon over 18 years) globally.
Global products of vegetation leaf area and fraction absorbed PAR from year one of MODIS data
An algorithm based on the physics of radiative transfer in vegetation canopies for the retrieval of vegetation green leaf area index (LAI) and fraction of absorbed photosynthetically active radiation
Improvements of the MODIS terrestrial gross and net primary production global data set
MODIS primary production products (MOD17) are the first regular, near-real-time data sets for repeated monitoring of vegetation primary production on vegetated land at 1-km resolution at an 8-day
Development of a global evapotranspiration algorithm based on MODIS and global meteorology data
Abstract The objective of this research is to develop a global remote sensing evapotranspiration (ET) algorithm based on Cleugh et al.'s [Cleugh, H.A., R. Leuning, Q. Mu, S.W. Running (2007) Regional
Generating surfaces of daily meteorological variables over large regions of complex terrain
Abstract A method for generating daily surfaces of temperature, precipitation, humidity, and radiation over large regions of complex terrain is presented. Required inputs include digital elevation
