Accurate estimation of the gross primary production (GPP) of terrestrial vegetation is vital for understanding the global carbon cycle and predicting future climate change. Multiple GPP products are currently available based on different methods, but their performances vary substantially when validated against GPP estimates from eddy covariance data. This paper provides a new GPP dataset at moderate spatial (500 m) and temporal (8-day) resolutions over the entire globe for 2000–2016. This GPP… 

Improved estimate of global gross primary production for reproducing its long-term variation, 1982–2017

Abstract. Satellite-based models have been widely used to simulate vegetation gross primary production (GPP) at the site, regional, or global scales in recent years. However, accurately reproducing

Estimation of Global Cropland Gross Primary Production from Satellite Observations by Integrating Water Availability Variable in Light-Use-Efficiency Model

Satellite-based models have been widely used to estimate gross primary production (GPP) of terrestrial ecosystems. Although they have many advantages for mapping spatiotemporal variations of regional

Generation of High Resolution Vegetation Productivity from a Downscaling Method

TLDR
Results of this paper indicated that downscaling methods have great potential in generating high resolution GPP and NPP and were compared with MODerate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer and estimated Global LAnd Surface Satellite products.

Variations of simulated water use efficiency over 2000-2016 and its driving forces in Northeast China

Water use efficiency (WUE), the ratio of gross primary production (GPP) over evapotranspiration (ET), is a critical index for understanding and predicting terrestrial ecosystem carbon-water

Contrasting Performance of the Remotely-Derived GPP Products over Different Climate Zones across China

TLDR
The spatial correlation analysis between terrestrial GPP and the climatic factors indicated that natural rainfall dominated the variability in GPP of Northern China, such as the midtemperate semiarid region, while temperature was a key controlling factor in the Southern China and the Tibet Plateau area.

Estimation of Terrestrial Global Gross Primary Production (GPP) with Satellite Data-Driven Models and Eddy Covariance Flux Data

TLDR
It is shown that variations in light-use efficiency (LUE) with incident PAR are important and can be easily incorporated into the models, and a significant fraction of both spatial and temporal variability in GPP across plant functional types can be accounted for using the satellite-based models.

Underestimates of Grassland Gross Primary Production in MODIS Standard Products

TLDR
The results suggest that the community should be cautious when using MODIS GPP products to examine spatial and temporal variations of carbon fluxes and consider improvements in εmax, FPAR, and the VPD scalar.

Spatiotemporal Consistency of Four Gross Primary Production Products and Solar‐Induced Chlorophyll Fluorescence in Response to Climate Extremes Across CONUS in 2012

Large spatial‐scale effects of climate extremes on gross primary production (GPP), the largest terrestrial carbon flux, are highly uncertain even as these extremes increase in frequency and extent.

Evaluation of the Latest MODIS GPP Products across Multiple Biomes Using Global Eddy Covariance Flux Data

TLDR
The results showed that MOD17A2H GPP underestimated flux-derived GPP at most sites, and the emax value needs to be adjusted to provide more accurate GPP estimates using MOD17 a2H for global ecosystems.

A Continuous Satellite-Derived Measure of Global Terrestrial Primary Production

TLDR
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.

Precipitation and carbon-water coupling jointly control the interannual variability of global land gross primary production

TLDR
The results demonstrate the importance of semi-arid regions to the global terrestrial carbon cycle and posit that there will be larger GPP and ET variations in the future with changes in precipitation patterns and dryland expansion.
