Global Leaf Area Index from Field Measurements, 1932-2000

Abstract: Leaf Area Index (LAI) data from the scientific literature, 1932-2000, have been compiled at the ORNL DAAC to support model development and EOS MODIS product validation. Like net primary productivity (NPP), leaf area index (LAI) is a key parameter for global and regional models of biosphere/atmosphere exchange.
