8. DATA PROCESSING

8.1 Data Processing (1)

8.1.1 General Explanation of the data producer's knowledge about the lineage of a dataset

Using the 6th and 7th Natural Environment Conservation Fundamental Observation data (Ministry of the Environment Government of Japan) and functional traits database of woody plants (Kurokawa et al. in preparation), we calculated community weighted mean (CWM) of leaf mass per area (LMA) for each observation unit. Also, climate data (Mesh climate data in National Numerical Information by Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism of Japan; East Anglia University Climate Research Unit CRU_TS 2.1 Dataset) and elevation (10m digital elevation model in Fundamental Map Information by Geospatial Information Authority of Japan) were assigned based on coordinates of the observation units by GIS. By applying CWM of LMA and climate information to the photosynthesis model by Reich et al. (2007), maximum photosynthetic rate (Amass, ╬╝mol/s/leaf g) was calculated for each observation unit. Then the values of photosynthetic rate was modeled by climate, elevation and vegetation of the observation units. Using this model and vegetation map at ca. 1996 (The 5th Natural Environment Conservation Fundamental Observation vegetation map), photosynthetic rate was spatially interpolated all over the Japan.
