Assimilation of H-SAF Soil Moisture Products for Flash Flood Early Warning Systems. Case Study: Mediterranean Catchments

Abstract

A reliable estimation of soil moisture conditions is fundamental for rivers' discharge predictions, especially in small catchments where flash floods occur. In this context, microwave remote sensing can be exploited to estimate soil moisture at large scale. These estimates can be used to enhance the predictions of hydrological models using data assimilation… (More)
