Estimating spatial and temporal variation of root zone soil moisture across a temperate forested catchment with remote sensing data and simple hydrologic models

Satellite-based near-surface (0–2 cm) soil moisture estimates have global coverage, but do not capture variations of soil moisture in the root zone (up to 100 cm depth) and may be biased with respect to ground-based soil moisture measurements. Here, we present an ensemble Kalman filter (EnKF) Continue Reading …
