Assessing Plant Productivity

This image shows predicted solar-induced chlorophyll fluorescence (SIF) in the Continental U.S. Areas of high predicted SIF are red (such as the corn belt of the Upper Midwest); areas of low predicted SIF are blue. SIF has a strong positive correlation with gross primary productivity in plants.

Training Networks to Predict Productivity

This image of predicted productivity was produced by training an artificial neural network (ANN) on SIF observations collected by NASA’s Orbiting Carbon Observatory-2 (OCO-2) satellite combined with Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) surface reflectance data.


NASA's data policy ensures that all NASA data are available fully, openly, and without restrictions. Here's what this means to you.
