Tucker, C.J., I.Y. Fung, C.D. Keeling, and R.H. Gammon, 1986: Relationship between atmospheric CO2 variations and a satellite-derived vegetation index. Nature, 319, 195-199, doi:10.1038/319195a0.

Estimates derived from satellite data of photosynthetically active radiation absorbed by terrestrial vegetation correlate with atmospheric carbon dioxide concentrations measured at surface recording stations, suggesting that satellite data can be used to estimate terrestrial photosynthesis.
