HANPP Collection: Human Appropriation of Net Primary Productivity as a Percentage of Net Primary ProductivityEntry ID: CIESIN_SEDAC_HANPP_PERCENT
Abstract: The Human Appropriation of Net Primary Productivity (HANPP) as a Percentage of Net Primary Product (NPP) portion of the HANPP Collection represents a map identifying regions in which human consumption of NPP is greatly in excess of production by local ecosystems. Humans appropriate net primary productivity through the consumption of food, paper, wood and fiber, which alters the composition of the ... atmosphere, levels of biodiversity, energy flows within food webs and the provision of important ecosystem services. Net primary productivity (NPP), the net amount of solar energy converted to plant organic matter through photosynthesis, can be measured in units of elemental carbon and represents the primary food energy source for the world's ecosystems. This dataset is distributed by the Columbia University Center for International Earth Science Information Network (CIESIN).
The data in Arc/Info GRID and GeoTIFF formats and maps in Portable Document Format (PDF) and Portable Network Graphics (PNG) format are available from the NASA Socioeconomic Data and Applications Center (SEDAC).
Purpose: To identify spatial variations in the amount of NPP consumption relative to local production in a way that highlight humanity's growing impact on the biosphere.

Access Constraints ISRIC - World Soil Information is pleased to make available a range of soil geographic and attribute data. Our databases were compiled using uniform methods (e.g., ISIS, SOTER, WISE). Strict quality-control measures were applied in developing the various databases but ISRIC does not warrant that the data are error free. Incomplete characterization data were available for many soil profiles because ... only selected measurements were undertaken during the original surveys. You are welcome to use the databases but you should be aware that the assessment of the accuracy and applicability of each dataset is strictly a USER RESPONSIBILITY; ISRIC takes no responsibility for problems that may arise from use of the databases. ISRIC requests you to acknowledge use of our data. This allows us to gauge the interest and usefulness of our services. Please refer to the data set documentation for suggested form of acknowledgement and citation. We kindly request that you send us two reprints of any publication that uses data received from ISRIC - World Soil Information. This will help us to determine the type and level of use of the data we distribute.
