Abstract The main objectives of this study were to provide a proxy “validation” of the Soil Moisture and Ocean Salinity (SMOS) mission's vegetation optical depth product ( τ SMOS ) on a global scale, to give a first indication of the potential of τ SMOS to capture large-scale vegetation dynamics, and to contribute towards investigations into the possible use of optical vegetation indices (VI's) for the estimation of τ . The analyses were performed by comparing the spatial and temporal behaviour… CONTINUE READING
