PML_V2 global evapotranspiration and gross primary production (2002.07-2019.08)

PML_V2 terrestrial evapotranspiration and total primary productivity dataset, including gross primary product (GPP), vegetation transpiration (Ec), soil evaporation (Es), vaporization of intercepted rainfall , Ei) and water body, ice and snow evaporation (ET_water), a total of 5 elements. The data format is tiff, the space-time resolution is 8 days, 0.05°, and the time span is 2002.07-2019.08.

Based on the Penman-Monteith-Leuning (PML) model, PML_V2 is coupled to the GPP process based on stomatal conductance theory. GPP and ET mutually restrict and restrict each other, which makes PML_V2 in ET simulation accuracy, which is greatly improved compared with the previous model. The parameters of PML_V2 are divided into different vegetation types and are determined on 95 vorticity-related flux stations around the world. The parameters were then migrated globally according to the MODIS MCD12Q2.006 IGBP classification. PML_V2 uses GLDAS 2.1 meteorological drive and MODIS leaf area index (LAI), reflectivity (Albedo), emissivity (Emissivity) as inputs, and finally obtains PML_V2 terrestrial evapotranspiration and total primary productivity data sets.

Data file naming and use method

The data is stored in TIFF format. The file name is "yyyy mm dd.tif", such as 2002-07-04.tif, which corresponds to GPP and ET in the 8 days from 2002-07-04 to 2002-07-11.
