Net primary productivity data set of the Tibetan Plateau (1980-2018)

Net primary productivity data set of the Tibetan Plateau (1980-2018)

The data set is based on the NPP simulated by 16 dynamic global vegetation models (TRENDY v8) under S2 Scenario (CO2+Climate) and represents the net primary productivity of the ecosystem. Data was derived from Le Quéré et al. (2019). The range of source data is global, and the Qinghai Tibet plateau region is selected in this data set. Original data is interpolated into 0.5*0.5 degree by the nearest neighbor method in space, and the original monthly scale is maintained in time. The data set is the standard model output data, which is often used to evaluate the temporal and spatial patterns of gross primary productivity, and compared with other remote sensing observations, flux observations and other data.

File naming and required software

File naming: NPP is stored in NC format, and the file is named "NPP"_ S2_ 1980_”。
Data reading mode: it can be directly opened with MATLAB or other software that can read NC files.
