Gridding the land surface into coarse homogeneous pixels may cause important biases on ecosystem model estimations of carbon budget components at local, regional and global scales. One of the main causes resulted in these biases is overlooking of sub-pixel variability of topography, especially in a mountainous area. This study analyzes the significance of topography to correct net primary productivity (NPP) estimates, made at coarse spatial resolutions where the land surface is considered… CONTINUE READING
