Spatial Downscaling of Gross Primary Productivity Using Topographic and Vegetation Heterogeneity Information: A Case Study in the Gongga Mountain Region of China

TLDR
The proposed downscaling algorithm could provide a reference when considering the effects of spatial heterogeneity on carbon flux simulations and retrieving other fine resolution ecological-physiology parameters over topographically complex terrains.

An Adjusted Two‐Leaf Light Use Efficiency Model for Improving GPP Simulations Over Mountainous Areas

Recently, light use efficiency (LUE) models have been widely used for calculating gross primary productivity (GPP). Unfortunately, these models are only suitable for flat areas without considering

SimSphere model sensitivity analysis towards establishing its use for deriving key parameters characterising land surface interactions

TLDR
A sophisticated, cutting-edge sensitivity analysis (SA) method adopting Bayesian theory was implemented on SimSphere, extending the understanding of SimSphere's structure and further establishes its coherence and correspondence to that of a natural system's behaviour.

Sensitivity Exploration of SimSphere Land Surface Model Towards Its Use for Operational Products Development from Earth Observation Data

The use of Earth Observation (EO) data combined with land surface process models is at present being explored to assist in better understanding the natural processes of the Earth as well as how the

Methodology for the estimation of terrestrial net primary production from remotely sensed data

Kumar and Monteith's (1981) model for the remote sensing of crop growth has been used to estimate continental net primary productivity (NPP) as well as its seasonal and spatial variations. The model

Estimating regional terrestrial carbon fluxes for the Australian continent using a multiple-constraint approach I. Using remotely sensed data and ecological observations of net primary production

We have developed a modelling framework that synthesizes various types of field measurements at different spatial and temporal scales. We used this modelling framework to estimate monthly means and

Gross primary productivity and transpiration flux of the Australian vegetation from 1788 to 1988 AD: effects of CO2 and land use change

We present a novel approach to estimating the transpiration flux and gross primary productivity (GPP) from Normalized Difference Vegetation Index, leaf functional types, and readily available climate

Spatial Variability of Surface Radiation Fluxes in Mountainous Terrain

Abstract This paper investigates the magnitude and causes of spatial variability of surface radiative fluxes in a complex alpine landscape in the Southern Alps of New Zealand. Radiative flux

Comparing global models of terrestrial net primary productivity (NPP): overview and key results

Seventeen global models of terrestrial biogeochemistry were compared with respect to annual and seasonal fluxes of net primary productivity (NPP) for the land biosphere. The comparison, sponsored by

Effect of error in the DEM on environmental variables for predictive vegetation modelling

Abstract Question: Predictive vegetation modelling relies on the use of environmental variables, which are usually derived from a base data set with some level of error, and this error is propagated

TLDR
The SRAD-generated irradiance estimates for the study region were found to be consistent with irradiance data from other sources, and estimates of irradiance were most sensitive to the parameters of sunshine fraction and cloudiness.
