Short Name:

AirMOSS: L4 Modeled Net Ecosystem Exchange (NEE), Continental USA, 2012-2014

This data set provides Level 4 estimates of Net Ecosystem Exchange (NEE) of CO2 across the conterminous USA at a spatial resolution of 50 km. Modeled estimates are provided at hourly and monthly temporal resolutions, from January 2012 through October 2014. The AirMOSS L4 Regional NEE data were produced by the Ecosystem Demography Biosphere Model (ED2) augmented by the AirMOSS-derived L2/3 root zone soil moisture data as an additional input. The AirMOSS soil moisture data were used to estimate the sensitivity of carbon fluxes to soil moisture and to diagnose and improve estimation and prediction of NEE by constraining the model's predictions of soil moisture and its impact on above- and below-ground fluxes.
