Gross primary productivity (GPP) is a key component of land–atmospheric carbon exchange. Reliable calculation of regional/global GPP is crucial for understanding the response of terrestrial ecosystems to climate change and human activity. In recent years, many light use efficiency (LUE) models driven by remote sensing data have been developed for calculating GPP at various spatial and temporal scales. However, some studies show that GPP calculated by LUE models was biased by different degrees depending on sky clearness conditions.In this study, a two-leaf light use efficiency (TL-LUE) model is developed based on the MOD17 algorithm to improve the calculation of GPP. This TL-LUE model separates the canopy into sunlit and shaded leaf groups and calculates GPP separately for them with different maximum light use efficiencies. Different algorithms are developed to calculate the absorbed photosynthetically active radiation for these two groups. GPP measured at 6 typical ecosystems in China was used to calibrate and validate the model. The results show that with the calibration using tower measurements of GPP, the MOD17 algorithm was able to capture the variations of measured GPP in different seasons and sites. But it tends to understate and overestimate GPP under the conditions of low and high sky clearness, respectively. The new TL-LUE model outperforms the MOD17 algorithm in reproducing measured GPP at daily and 8-day scales, especially at forest sites. The calibrated LUE of shaded leaves is 2.5–3.8 times larger than that of sunlit leaves. The newly developed TL-LUE model shows lower sensitivity to sky conditions than the MOD17 algorithm. This study demonstrates the potential of the TL-LUE model in improving GPP calculation due to proper description of differences in the LUE of sunlit and shaded leaves and in the transfer of direct and diffuse light beams within the canopy.
