Accurately quantifying cropland gross primary production (GPP) is of great importance to monitor cropland status and carbon budgets. Satellite-based light-use efficiency (LUE) models and process-based terrestrial biosphere models (TBMs) have been widely used to quantify cropland GPP at different scales in past decades. However, model estimates of GPP are still subject to large uncertainties, especially for croplands. More recently, space-borne solar-induced chlorophyll fluorescence (SIF) has…

Estimating Diurnal Courses of Gross Primary Production for Maize: A Comparison of Sun-Induced Chlorophyll Fluorescence, Light-Use Efficiency and Process-Based Models

TLDR
This study indicated that the BEPS model simulated the GPP best due to its efficiency in describing the underlying physiological processes of sunlit and shaded leaves.

Remote measurement of solar-induced chlorophyll fluorescence (SIF) has opened a new perspective to assess plant actual photosynthesis at larger, ecologically relevant scales. Several recent

LINKING PHOTOSYNTHETIC LIGHT USE EFFICIENCY AND OPTICAL VEGETATION ACTIVE INDICATORS: IMPLICATIONS FOR GROSS PRIMARY PRODUCTION ESTIMATION BY REMOTE SENSING

Abstract. Over the last 40 years, the light use efficiency (LUE) model has become a popular approach for gross primary productivity (GPP) estimation in the carbon and remote sensing communities.

arameterizing ecosystem light use efficiency and water use fficiency to estimate maize gross primary production and vapotranspiration using MODIS

Quantifying global carbon and water balances requires accurate estimation of gross primary production (GPP) and evapotranspiration (ET), respectively, across space and time. Models that are based on

Gross Primary Production of a Wheat Canopy Relates Stronger to Far Red Than to Red Solar-Induced Chlorophyll Fluorescence

TLDR
The results imply some constraints in the use of simple linear relationships to infer GPP from SIF, as they are expected to be better predictive with far red SIF for canopies with a high dynamic range of green biomass and a low LUE variation range.

TLDR
Estimating GPP using specific SIF–GPP relationships, and information on different plant functional types (PFTs) and their interactions with precipitation and soil moisture over the Great Plains and Texas regions can help produce more reasonable GPP estimates.

Estimation of vegetation photosynthetic capacity from space‐based measurements of chlorophyll fluorescence for terrestrial biosphere models

TLDR
It is shown that top-of-canopy SIF measurements from space are sensitive to Vcmax at the ecosystem level, and an approach to invert Vc Max from SIF data is presented, suggesting the potential for global, time-resolved estimates of Vc max.

Our ability to close the Earth's carbon budget and predict feedbacks in a warming climate depends critically on knowing where, when and how carbon dioxide is exchanged between the land and

Global and time-resolved monitoring of crop photosynthesis with chlorophyll fluorescence

TLDR
New space-based observations of chlorophyll fluorescence enable an accurate, global, and time-resolved measurement of crop photosynthesis, which is not possible from any other remote vegetation measurement, and indicates that SIF data can help improve global models for more accurate projections of agricultural productivity and climate impact on crop yields.
