Forest GPP Calculation Using Sap Flow and Water Use Efficiency Measurements
Authors:  Fyodor Tatarinov, Eyal Rotenberg, Dan Yakir and Tamir Klein, date: 04/20/2017, view: 1210, Q&A: 0
This is a protocol to evaluate gross primary productivity (GPP) of a forest stand based on the measurements of tree’s sap flow (SF), 13C derived water use efficiency (WUE), and meteorological (met) data. GPP was calculated from WUE and ...
