Paper Abstract

Satellite ADEOS-II was launched on 14 December 2002 by Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA). The purpose of this study is to estimate global terrestrial net primary production (NPP) with a newly developed algorithm that estimates gross photosynthesis using ADEOS-II/GLI data as input. It is the first time that ADEOS-II/GLI data have been used as input to estimate NPP. The NPP estimation error is 26%. In this study, total ANPP estimates between 60°N and 60°S in the world were 65.2±17.0 [1015gC/year]. The results were compared with NPP ground measurement data, and NPP values estimated by other studies, such as NPP derived from climatic model and NPP estimated using other satellite data (e.g., NOAA/AVHRR, Terra/MODIS). The pattern of this study's distribution of estimated NPP in the world was similar to that of other studies.
