  1. The list includes only those models of productivity that were calibrated for global scale applications of fine spatial resolution (1-degree or higher). The series of models developed in 80s [4650] was not included, for their spatial resolution is too coarse (the biosphere is split into several discrete productivity zones.) Some dynamic global vegetation models [33, 51] were not included in the list either because we did not receive confirmation from the authors that model outputs include an original baseline annual estimate of productivity or because of the coarse resolution of the model product [52]. Any corrections and suggestions to this list can be posted as a comment to the article, pressing "Post a Comment" button on the article website.
  2. * model outputs are available for downloading from a public website
  3. ** model outputs are stored in Carbon Sink Archives and available for model benchmarking using the web-based service provided by the OGED/CGER/NIES [53]
