Description

The MODIS Net Primary Production (NPP) CONUS dataset estimates NPP using MODIS Surface Reflectance for CONUS. NPP is the amount of carbon captured by plants in an ecosystem, after accounting for losses due to respiration. NPP is calculated using the MOD17 algorithm (see MOD17 User Guide) with MODIS Surface Reflectance, gridMET, and the National Land Cover Database.
