Abstract

Quantifying the response of vegetation Net Primary Productivity (NPP) to phenological dynamics is critical to study climate change effects on ecosystem dynamics in the high-latitude, so investigating responses of NPP to phenological dynamics is becoming an increasing important way to identify and predict global ecosystem dynamics. In this study, we intend to quantifying the temporal trends and spatial variations of vegetation phenology and NPP across the Tibetan Plateau by calibrating and analyzing time series of the MODIS-derived normalized difference vegetation index (NDVI) during 2002–2012, and examining the mechanisms of vegetation NPP response to phenological dynamics over the plateau. ..
