Assessing Spatiotemporal Variability of NPP, NEP and Carbon Sinks of Global Grassland Ecosystem in Response to Climate Change in 1911-2011

The project addressed existing gaps in the field of global land use and climate change research. It focused on building and enhancing scientific capacity in three developing countries and explored the quantifying methods on assessing spatiotemporal variability of net primary production (NPP), NEP and carbon sinks of global grassland ecosystem in response to climate change and human activity during 1911-2011. This is a new attempt to integrate natural and social sciences in the study of land use change and climate change, and to overcome critical gaps in knowledge on how to enhance and manage the global grassland ecosystem, which includes management of grassland production, biomass, NPP, NEP, and carbon sinks and environmental goals, in the face of climate change in the period 1911-2011.
