Net Ecosystem Production (NEP) is a measurement of the net gain (or loss) of energy/carbon in a system over a period of time. NEP, therefore, is NPP minus energy lost through heterotrophic respiration. NEP is expressed in flux units (g/m² · yr) and is estimated based on long-term averages of NEE measurements.
