Introduction on Soil Moisture and how products can be integrated into models


Jean Christophe Calvet talks about the assimilation of H-SAF soil moisture products into models.

Length: 28 minutes.


In situ and satellite-derived soil moisture observations are needed to better understand and simulate land surface processes. This has been the subject of active research for more than two decades. The transfer to operations in weather forecast, hydrometeorological, and drought monitoring applications also implies the integration of satellite-derived observations into models. Examples of the use of soil moisture observations, simulations, and data assimilation are presented.
