Vegetation captures carbon from the atmosphere through photosynthesis, the rate of which varies across space, through time and is determined by both physical and biological factors. Methods for estimating photosynthesis (A) vary in their complexity and in which driving processes they capture. Whilst the effect of diffuse shortwave irradiance on A is well understood, few models have explicitly incorporated the diffuse effect into estimates of A. Here we present the DIFFUSE model, a simple,...[Show more]
