Paper accepted using solar-induced fluorescence to estimate crop productivity

March 17, 2020

● The photosynthetic pathway (C3, C4) impacts the relationship between CO2 uptake and SIF, which helps to interpret satellite signals.

● TROPOMI SIF agrees well with the seasonality of crop gross primary production (GPP) when accounting for C3/C4 fractionation.

● TROPOMI SIF is highly correlated with USDA reported crop productivity at the county scale.
