Recently, Professor Tan Kun published a research paper in “Scientific Reports” titled "Assessing the Spatiotemporal Variation and Impact Factors of Net Primary Productivity in China", in which China University of Mining and Technology is the first signed unit and communication unit. "Scientific Reports" is a comprehensive academic journal with significant influence in the “Nature” Group, which ranks 7/63 in the JCR district Q1.
Net primary productivity of vegetation is an important index of the carbon cycle, which is widely used to characterize carbon sequestration capacity.Cooperating with his doctoral student Wang Xue, Professor Tan Kun obtained high precision distribution data on net primary vegetation productivity in China through applying remote sense imaging in China's land system.They further analyzed the results from climate, culture, economy and other aspects.Combined with the analysis of the results they also gave guidance on economic construction and ecological environmental protection.The research was supported by the National Natural Science Foundation of China and the Basic Scientific Research Fund of the Central University.
