Assimilation of an L-Band Microwave Soil Moisture Proxy to Compensate for Uncertainties in Precipitation Data

  title={Assimilation of an L-Band Microwave Soil Moisture Proxy to Compensate for Uncertainties in Precipitation Data},

  journal={IEEE Transactions on Geoscience and Remote Sensing},
The accuracy of hydrological model simulations is dependent on the reliability of model input data like, for example, meteorological information or land cover and soil information. Uncertainties of simulations of soil water fluxes are hereby directly related to the accuracy of available precipitation data. As precipitation is characterized by small temporal and spatial correlation lengths, the uncertainties in precipitation data increase with decreasing density of available precipitation gauges… CONTINUE READING
