In the forward model [L-band microwave emission of the biosphere (L-MEB)] used in the Soil Moisture and Ocean Salinity level-2 retrieval algorithm, modeling of the roughness effects is based on a simple semiempirical approach using three main “roughness” model parameters: HR, QR, and NR. In many studies, the two parameters QR and NR are set to zero. However, recent results in the literature showed that this is too approximate to accurately simulate the microwave emission of the rough soil… CONTINUE READING
