Cover Story (view full-size image): Primary production by marine phytoplankton is one of the largest fluxes of carbon on our planet. In the past few decades, considerable progress has been made in estimating global primary production at high spatial and temporal scales by combining in situ measurements of primary production with remote sensing observations of phytoplankton biomass. Here, we address one of the major challenges in this approach by improving the assignment of appropriate model parameters that define the photosynthetic response of phytoplankton cells. A global database of over 9,000 in situ photosynthesis–irradiance measurements and a 20-year record of climate quality satellite observations were used to assess global primary production and its variability between 1998 and 2018.View this paper.
