The Divergent Estimates of Diffuse Radiation Effects on Gross Primary Production of Forest Ecosystems Using Light‐Use Efficiency Models

Diffuse radiation can promote the vegetation photosynthesis. Radiation use efficiency (RUE = GPP/PAR) simulated by Terrestrial Ecosystem Carbon Flux GPP Model (TEC), Vegetation Photosynthesis Model

Modeling the Effects of Global and Diffuse Radiation on Terrestrial Gross Primary Productivity in China Based on a Two-Leaf Light Use Efficiency Model

The increase in canopy light use efficiency under higher diffuse radiation only partially offsets the loss of GPP caused by lower global radiation, which decreased the average annual GPP of terrestrial ecosystems in China by 0.09 Pg C y−1, whereas the gain in diffuse radiation from 1981 to 2012 increased the average yearly GPP in ChinaBy about 50%.

The Effect of Diffuse Radiation on Ecosystem Carbon Fluxes Across China From FLUXNET Forest Observations

Aerosol loading and cloud cover can alter the composition of radiation reaching the Earth’s surface and affect the ecosystem’s carbon cycle. In this study, we established an empirical model of the

Impacts of di ff use radiation fraction on light use e ffi ciency and gross primary production of winter wheat in the North China Plain

The increase of diffuse radiation fraction (kd) has been reported to significantly impact light use efficiency (LUE) and carbon uptake in terrestrial ecosystems. The impact of kd on LUE should be

Impacts of Diffuse Radiation on Light Use Efficiency across Terrestrial Ecosystems Based on Eddy Covariance Observation in China

This research confirmed that the ecosystem LUE at the six sites in China was positively responsive to the diffuse radiation, and the cloudiness index could be used as an environmental regulator for LUE modeling in regional GPP prediction.

Modeling gross primary production of a temperate grassland ecosystem in Inner Mongolia, China, using MODIS imagery and climate data

Carbon fluxes in temperate grassland ecosystems are characterized by large inter-annual variations due to fluctuations in precipitation and land water availability. Since an eddy flux tower has been

Evaluation of cropland maximum light use efficiency using eddy flux measurements in North America and Europe

Croplands cover 12% of the ice‐free land surface and play an important role in the global carbon cycle. Light use efficiency (LUE) models have often been employed to estimate the exchange of CO2
