Table 2: Compilation of studies used to estimate tropical vegetation BVOC emission factors for the MEGAN2.1 model [5]. Emission measurement approaches include enclosure (E), canopy micrometeorological (C), and landscape inverse modeling (L) techniques. Compounds include isoprene (Iso), monoterpenes (MT), and other (Other). PFTs include broadleaf deciduous tree (BDT), broadleaf evergreen tree (BET), and warm C4 grass (C4G).
