  (updated 15-Nov-2016)
Project Title:Evaluating growing season length and productivity across the ABoVE Domain using novel satellite indices and a ground sensor network
Project Lead: John Gamon, University of Nebraska - Lincoln
Project Funding: 2015 - 2019
NASA (agency representative: Eric Kasischke)
Project Type:NASA -- joined ABoVE in 2015
Solicitation:NASA: Terrestrial Ecology (2014)
Abstract: Objectives: 1) Using novel combinations of MODIS bands (including new chlorophyll:carotenoid indices, CCIs), we will develop a new light-use efficiency (LUE) model. 2) The new LUE model terms and products (e.g. gross primary productivity, GPP) will be compared to ground validation sites where flux and optical data are available. 3) We will compare ...
