9 10 11 ABSTRACT 12 Land Surface Models (LSM) offer a description of land surface processes and set the 13 lower boundary conditions for meteorological models. In particular the accurate description of 14 those surface variables which display a slow response in time, like root zone soil moisture or 15 vegetation biomass, is of great importance. Errors in(More)
—During ERS-1 and ERS-2 missions, the application of synthetic aperture radar interferometry (InSAR) become known as a very important method for topographic mapping and high accuracy surface displacement measurements. Further investigations, however, showed that expected accuracy couldn't be achieved. It appeared that radiowave propagation through the(More)
[1] The Soil Moisture and Ocean Salinity (SMOS) mission of the European Space Agency was successfully launched in November 2009 to provide global surface soil moisture and sea surface salinity maps. The SMOS single payload is the Microwave Imaging Radiometer by Aperture Synthesis (MIRAS), an L band two‐dimensional aperture synthesis interferometric(More)
Context. The AMIGA project aims to build a well defined and statistically significant reference sample of isolated galaxies in order to estimate the environmental effects on the formation and evolution of galaxies. Aims. The goal of this paper is to provide a measure of the environment of the isolated galaxies in the AMIGA sample, quantifying the influence(More)
Land surface processes and their initialization are of crucial importance to address the challenge of seamless (from weather to seasonal) Numerical Weather Prediction (NWP). In particular it has been found that soil moisture influences the land-atmosphere exchange processes on all relevant time scales. It is therefore expected to be of high interest for NWP(More)
