Part 8. Flux versus Parameter optimisation using atmospheric CO2
Whether we should optimize surface fluxes with atmospheric CO2 data (classical atmospheric inversion) or we should directly optimize the underlying ecosystem model parameters used to estimate the natural surface fluxes, is a current research question. Both approaches have different strength and weaknesses.
To investigate that question, we present below an example of the two appraoches:
Note that the atmospheric network used correspond to that of Part 5. MODIS-NDVI data were taken at around 100 sites across the globe and 77 FluxNet site were used with observation of NEE and LE.
