ABSTRACT
Accurate and timely monitoring of gross primary production (GPP) at regional and global scales is necessary for understanding the terrestrial biosphere carbon balance. In this article, 8-day composite GPP is estimated using the region production efficiency model (REG-PEM) in the Heihe river basin from 2006 to 2008. The result indicates that GPP meets the seasonal cycle well and varies with different land covers. Analysis of uncertainty and sensitivity of the REG-PEM model are implemented by the Monte Carlo method. GPP is simulated with a test data set; the data set includes three groups, and each group has 8000 points. The three groups obey uniform distribution, normal distribution and beta distribution, respectively. Uncertainty is assessed by the quantification of mean values and standard deviation of outputs. The distribution of simulated GPP is slightly different from that of model-calculated GPP over the study sites. Among the input parameters, the land surface water index (LSWI) and air temperature (T) make less of a contribution to model output than photosynthetic active radiation (PAR) and the enhanced vegetation index (EVI). The main sources of model uncertainty are input data uncertainty and uncertainty from the specific model.

    The coefficient of variation is defined as the ratio of the standard deviation to the mean. Because it is unit-free, we therefore use it to compare the spread of data sets that have different units or different means. In this paper, confidence intervals for the difference between the...

    An adaptive resampling method is provided. It determines the number of particles to resample so that the Kullback-Leibler distance (KLD) between the distribution of particles before resampling and after resampling does not exceed a pre-specified error bound. The basis of the method is the same...

    We propose a new sensitivity analysis methodology for complex stochastic dynamics based on the relative entropy rate. The method becomes computationally feasible at the stationary regime of the process and involves the calculation of suitable observables in path space for the relative entropy...
