The aims are to validate and assess the performances of MODIS gross primary production (MODIS-GPP) and evapotranspiration (MODIS-ET) products in China's different land cover types and their sensitivity to remote sensing input data. In this study, MODIS-GPP and-ET are evaluated using flux derived/measured data from eight sites of ChinaFLUX. Results show that(More)
Accurate quantification of gross primary production (GPP) at regional and global scales is essential for carbon budgets and climate change studies. Five models, the vegetation photosynthesis model (VPM), the temperature and greenness model (TG), the alpine vegetation model (AVM), the greenness and radiation model (GR), and the MOD17 algorithm, were tested(More)
The biophysical effect of land use conversion plays a significant role in regulating climate change. Owing to albedo and evapotranspiration (ET) change, the effect of energy budget difference on land surface temperature (LST) is important but unclear among contrasting land use types, especially in temperate semi-arid regions. Based on moderate-resolution(More)
