Evaluation of Reanalysis Soil Moisture Simulations Using Updated Chinese Soil Moisture Observations

  title={Evaluation of Reanalysis Soil Moisture Simulations Using Updated Chinese Soil Moisture Observations},
  author={Li Haibin and Alan Robock},
Using 19 yr of Chinese soil moisture data from 1981 to 1999, the authors evaluate soil moisture in three reanalysis outputs: the 40-yr European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF) ReAnalysis (ERA-40); the National Centers for Environmental Prediction–National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCEP–NCAR) reanalysis 1 (R-1); and the NCEP–Department of Energy (DOE) reanalysis 2 (R-2) over China. R-2 shows improved interannual variability and better seasonal patterns of soil moisture… CONTINUE READING
