Comparison of satellite-derived estimates of gross primary production for Australian old-growth tropical rainforest

Nightingale, Joanne M; Hill, Michael; Phinn, Stuart; Held, Alex


The moderate-resolution spectroradiometer (MODIS) sensor has provided estimates of near-real-time gross and annual net primary production (GPP and NPP) since March 2000. We compare 2 years (2000 and 2001) of satellite-based calculations of GPP in the seasonally wet tropical rainforests of north Queensland, Australia, with estimates derived from an ecosystem process model, physiological principles predicting growth using satellite data (3-PGS), that was previously calibrated with ground-based...[Show more]
