A Training Course on CO 2 Eddy Flux Data Analysis and Modeling Parameter Estimation: Practice Katherine Owen John Tenhunen Xiangming Xiao Institute of Geography and Natural Resources, Chinese Academy of Sciences, Beijing, China Institute for the Study of Earth, Oceans and Space, University of New Hampshire, USA Department of Plant Ecology, University of Bayreuth, Germany The Institute of Geography and Natural Resources, CAS, Beijing, China July 25, 2006

Practice: Parameter Estimation Many available methods. I will show: Hyperbolic Light Response Model Physiological Carboxylase-based Process Model both from Owen et al. 2006, Global Change Biology, submitted Outline 1. Inputs: data preparation 2. Running the program and potential problems 3. Outputs and potential problems 4. Examples

3
Practice: Parameter Estimation Inputs: Data preparation Input files for parameter estimation with the Hyperbolic Light Response Model (1): 1. Half-hourly meteorological and gas flux data (output file from flux partitioning and gap filling - “HE2001Processed.txt”)

4
Practice: Parameter Estimation Inputs: Data preparation Input files for parameter estimation with the Physiological Carboxylase-based Process Model (2): 1. Half-hourly meteorological and gas flux data (output file from flux partitioning and gap filling - “HE2001Processed.txt”) 2. Leaf Area Index (LAI) - either constant value or seasonally changing file (“HE2001.lai”) 3. Latitude & Longitude- to calculate sun angle 4. Physiological parameters - previously published values (eg. Leaf angle, Michaelis-Menton constant for oxygenation, Maximum rate of electron transport, etc.) for different vegetation types (“coni.gfx”)

5
Practice: Flux Partitioning & Gap Filling Inputs: Data preparation Review daily outputs from flux partitioning and gap filling - Are there problems? Do the results make sense? LAI file gfx file

6
Practice: Parameter Estimation Potential problems in running the program The Hyperbolic Light Response Model stops running: Fitter gets “stuck in a local minima” or can not converge on a solution due to high scatter in data (typical for winter or in periods with cut or harvests) - skip parameter estimation for the period The Physiological Carboxylase-based Process Model stops: Latitude & longitude were not defined LAI data file has a different number of days than meteorological and gas flux input file Fitter gets “stuck in a local minima” - skip parameter estimation for the period

7
Practice: Parameter Estimation How the Hyperbolic Light Response Model (1) works Use PPFD & un-gap filled NEE and non-linear least trimmed squares regression technique to iteratively calculate the , , and for 10 day periods Set initial random values of , , and Read in half- hourly meteorological & flux input file Output: optimal , , and parameters for 10 day periods

8
Practice: Parameter Estimation Hyperbolic Light Response Model (1) Outputs Parameters: Standard error of and Slope, intercept & r 2 of observed NEE vs. calculated NEE

9
Practice: Parameter Estimation: Outputs & Potential Problems: Hyperbolic Light Response Model (1) “abnormal” results can be due to: Winter periods with little light response Strong scatter in NEE & PPFD relationship (due to cut or harvest) Poor starting values of - results stuck in local minima We chose to eliminate “abnormal” results with:relative standard error > 0.6, > 0.17, > 100, > 15

10
Practice: Parameter Estimation: How the Physiological Carboxylase-based Process Model (2) works Define LAI: constant or seasonally changing from file Calculate static geometric attributes of the canopy (diffuse & direct radiation on leaf surfaces-sunlit & shaded) Iteratively calculate energy balance throughout canopy (leaf temperature, incoming and outgoing shortwave & longwave radiation, estimated GPP) Define latitude, longitude, vegetation type gfx input file Read in half- hourly meteo & flux input file Output: (Vc uptake2* and alpha) or (Vc uptake1* ) parameters for 10 day periods

11
Practice: Parameter Estimation Carboxylase-based Process Model (2) Outputs Parameters: Vc uptake & alpha Standard error of Vc uptake & alpha Slope, intercept & r 2 of observed GPP vs. calculated GPP

12
Practice: Parameter Estimation Outputs & Potential Problems Carboxylase-based Process Model (2) “Abnormal” Vc uptake & alpha results can be due to: LAI of 0 Poor estimates of seasonal LAI harvests or cuts scatter or errors in data We chose to eliminate “abnormal” results with:relative standard error > 0.6, Vc uptake > 350, alpha > 0.17 Easter Bush, UK, 2005, LAI too low
