Summary
Abstract: The Moderate-resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) Net Primary Productivity (NPP) product (MOD17A3) defines the rate at which all plants in an ecosystem produce net useful chemical energy. In other words, NPP is equal to the difference between the rate at which plants in an ecosystem produce useful chemical energy (or GPP), and the rate at which they expend some of that energy for ...
