Description

Breathing Earth System Simulator (BESS) is a simplified process-based model that couples atmosphere and canopy radiative transfers, canopy photosynthesis, transpiration, and energy balance. It couples an atmospheric radiative transfer model and artificial neural network with forcings from MODIS atmospheric products to generate 5-km daily products.
