Developing an improved soil moisture dataset by blending passive and active microwave satellite-based retrievals
Combining information derived from satellite-based passive and active microwave sensors has the potential to offer improved estimates of surface soil moisture at global scale. We develop and evaluate a methodology that takes advantage of the retrieval characteristics of passive (AMSR-E) and active (ASCAT) microwave satellite estimates to produce an improved soil moisture product. First, volumetric soil water content (m3 m-3) from AMSR-E and degree of saturation (%) from ASCAT are rescaled...[Show more]
