Evaluation of gross primary production (GPP) variability over several ecosystems in Switzerland using sun-induced chlorophyll fluorescence derived from APEX data


Damm, Alexander; Kneubühler, Mathias; Schaepman, Michael E; Rascher, Uwe (2012). Evaluation of gross primary production (GPP) variability over several ecosystems in Switzerland using sun-induced chlorophyll fluorescence derived from APEX data.

Abstract

Plant photosynthesis mediates about 60Gt of the carbon uptake by vegetated ecosystems and is considered to be a critical component of the terrestrial carbon cycle. Photosynthesis is, however, a highly adaptive process and lack of knowledge on its dynamic causes uncertainties in current carbon budgets. New remote sensing approaches allow measuring the chlorophyll fluorescence signal (FS) and hold the potential to directly assess ecosystem photosynthesis and related carbon assimilation rates (i.e., gross primary production (GPP)).

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
