This paper discusses soil moisture retrievals over the Tibetan Plateau from brightness temperature ( TB’s) observed by the Special Sensor Microwave Imagers (SSM/I’s) during the warm seasons of the period from July 1987 to December 2008. The Fundamental Climate Data Record (FCDR) of F08, F11 and F13 SSM/I satellites by the Precipitation Research Group of Colorado State University is used for this study. A soil moisture retrieval algorithm is developed based on a radiative transfer model that… CONTINUE READING
