Understanding and predicting these effects on the water cycle are becoming increasingly critical (Jackson et al., 2001), but to date, there has been little progress in generating mechanistic(More)
This paper describes and assesses the quality of the algorithm, " Soil MOisture retrieval from multi-temporal SAR data " (SMOSAR), developed in view of the forthcoming European Space Agency (ESA) Sentinel-1 (S-1) mission. SMOSAR retrieves soil moisture (m v) products at high spatial resolution (i.e. less than 1km) from dense time series of either single(More)
The objective of the study is to investigate the potential of retrieving superficial soil moisture content (m v) from multi-temporal L-band synthetic aperture radar (SAR) data and hydrologic modelling. The study focuses on assessing the performances of an L-band SAR retrieval algorithm intended for agricultural areas and for watershed spatial scales (e.g.(More)
—It is widely recognized that Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) data are a very valuable source of information for the modeling of the interactions between the land surface and the atmosphere. During the last couple of decades, most of the research on the use of SAR data in hydrologic applications has been focused on the retrieval of land and biogeophysical(More)
More and more terrestrial observational networks are being established to monitor climatic, hydrological and land-use changes in different regions of the World. In these networks, time series of states and fluxes are recorded in an automated manner, often with a high temporal resolution. These data are important for the understanding of water, energy,(More)
[1] The estimation of catchment-averaged aquifer hydraulic conductivity values is usually performed through a base flow recession analysis. Relationships between the first time derivatives of the base flow and the base flow values themselves, derived for small and large values of time, are used for this purpose. However, in the derivation of the short-time(More)
