HANPP Collection: Global Patterns in Net Primary Productivity (NPP)

Abstract: The Global Patterns in Net Primary Productivity (NPP) portion of the HANPP Collection maps the net amount of solar energy converted to plant organic

matter through photosynthesis. NPP is 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).

Purpose: To be utilized in conjunction with a data set of human appropriation of net primary productivity (HANPP) in order to understand global energy flows

and localized impacts on the environment.
