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 data. We use this approach to explore the impact of variations in the concentration of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere (IC02]) and consequent predicted changes in vegetation cover, on the transpiration flux and GPP. There was a near 1:1 relationship between GPP estimated with this transpiration...[Show more]
