Kurzfassung

The German Remote Sensing Data Center operates the Biosphere Energy Transfer Hydrology Model, a process model that estimates the NPP of agricultural areas. The model is driven by remote sensing data and meteorological data. Remotely sensed datasets including a time series of the leaf area index, which describes vegetation condition, and a land cover classification, which provides information about land use, are needed. Currently leaf area indices and land cover data derived from the sensor VEGETATION are used. Both datasets have spatial resolutions of about 1km2 and are freely available for the area of investigation (Germany and Austria). The meteorological input parameters are obtained from the ECMWF, with a spatial resolution of about 0.25° and a temporal resolution up to four times daily. The output of the model, the GPP, is calculated at daily resolution. By subtracting the cumulative plant maintenance and growth respiration, the NPP is then determined. In order to validate the modelled NPP, crop yield estimates derived from the national statistics of Germany and Austria are used. After estimating above ground biomass using plant-specific above- to below-ground ratios, conversion factors are applied to estimate total biomass. Finally the carbon content of dry matter is estimated. To correlate model results with these statistical data, the modelled data are aggregated to NPP per administrative district. The results show that a process model using remote sensing data as input can deliver reliable estimates of agricultural biomass potential which are highly correlated with statistically derived estimates of actual biomass produced.
