This work used eddy covariance data acquired by the FLUXNET community and in particular by the following networks: AmeriFlux (U.S. Department of Energy, Biological and Environmental Research, Terrestrial Carbon Program (DE-FG02-04ER63917 and DE-FG02-04ER63911)), AfriFlux, AsiaFlux, CarboAfrica, CarboEuropeIP, CarboItaly, CarboMont, ChinaFlux, Fluxnet-Canada (supported by CFCAS, NSERC, BIOCAP, Environment Canada, and NRCan), GreenGrass, KoFlux, LBA, NECC, OzFlux, TCOS-Siberia, USCCC.We acknowledge the financial support to the eddy co-variance data harmonization provided by CarboEuropeIP, FAO-GTOS-TCO, iLEAPS, Max Planck Institute for Biogeochemistry, National Science Foundation, University of Tuscia, Universitie Laval and Environment Canada and US Department of Energy and the database development and technical support from Berkeley Water Center, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, Microsoft Research eScience, Oak Ridge National Laboratory, University of California - Berkeley, University of Virginia. Remotely sensed land cover, fAPAR, and LAI were available through the Joint Research Centre of the European Commission, the National Aeronautics Space Administration, and the projects GLC2000 and CYCLOPES. Climate data came from the European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts, the Climate Research Unit of the University of East Anglia, and the GEWEX project GPCP. We thank Mahendra K. Karki at GMAO/NASA for extracting the MOD17 required surface meteorological variables from GMAO reanalysis dataset and Maosheng Zhao at NTSG of Univesrity of Montana for calculating the respective daytime VPD. CB, DP, MR, PC, DB, and SL conceived the study. CB, CR, DP, ET, MJ, MR, and NC contributed diagnostic modeling results. CB, AB, GB, ML, IW and NV contributed process model results. CB, ET, and MR performed the analysis. CB and MR wrote the manuscript with substantial input from all other co-authors.
