TOWARDS A BIOSPHERE ATMOSPHERE CHANGE INDEX

WP4 New downstream data products

Lead: MPG
Main Contact: Martin Jung, WP4 Leader

The overall aim of this work package is to derive novel synergistic products of essential ecosystem variables (EEVs) and ecosystem functional properties by integrating ground measurements and EO with machine learning methods. More specifically, our objectives are:

  • Upscaling the diurnal cycle of carbon and energy fluxes from half-hourly FLUXNET data
  • Mapping key ecosystem functional properties related to e.g. radiation use efficiency and water use efficiency of gross primary production
  • Generating a spatially explicit reconstruction of tree-ring variability for Europe
  • Producing spatially and temporally explicit patterns of ecosystem scale plant traits
  • Providing an objective functional classification of the biosphere
