Abstract
Light use efficiency (LUE) is a critical parameter for estimating carbon exchange in many ecosystem models, especially those models based on remote sensing algorithms. Estimation and monitoring of LUE and gross primary productivity (GPP) over wetland is very important for the global carbon cycle research and modelling, since the wetland plays a vital role in the ecosystem balance. In this paper, carbon flux data observed with an eddy covariance tower over a reedsdominated wetland in Zhangye, northwest of China, was used to calculate LUE. Through the postprocessing of carbon flux data and estimation of ecosystem respiration, daily GPP was calculated firstly. Combining with fraction of absorbed photosynthetically active radiation (FPAR) inversed from HJ-1 satellite, LUE was determined. The maximum value of LUE was 1.03 g C·MJ-1 occurred in summer. Furthermore, a regional vegetation productivity model based on meteorological data and remote sensing data was used to estimate the wetland GPP. The results show that the modeled GPP results were consistent with in situ data.
