  • A combined modeling and multispectral/multiresolution remote sensing approach for disaggregation of surface soil moisture: application to SMOS configuration

    A new physically based disaggregation method is developed to improve the spatial resolution of the surface soil moisture extracted from the Soil Moisture and Ocean Salinity (SMOS) data. The approach combines the 40-km resolution SMOS multiangular brightness temperatures and 1-km resolution auxiliary data composed of visible, near-infrared, and thermal infrared remote sensing data and all the surface variables involved in the modeling of land surface-atmosphere interaction available at this scale (soil texture, atmospheric forcing, etc.). The method successively estimates a relative spatial distribution of soil moisture with fine-scale auxiliary data, and normalizes this distribution at SMOS resolution with SMOS data. The main assumption relies on the relationship between the radiometric soil temperature inverted from the thermal infrared and the microwave soil moisture. Based on synthetic data generated with a land surface model, it is shown that the radiometric soil temperature can be used as a tracer of the spatial variability of the 0-5 cm soil moisture. A sensitivity analysis shows that the algorithm remains stable for big uncertainties in auxiliary data and that the uncertainty in SMOS observation seems to be the limiting factor. Finally, a simple application to the SGP97/AVHRR data illustrates the usefulness of the approach.

  • Incorporating Surface Soil Moisture Information in Error Modeling of TRMM Passive Microwave Rainfall

    This study assesses the significance of conditioning the error modeling of The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA)'s Tropical Rainfall Measurement Mission Microwave Imager rainfall algorithm (2A12) to near-surface soil moisture data derived from a land surface model. The term “conditioning” means the model parameters' dependence on soil wetness. The Oklahoma (OK) region is used as the study area due to its relatively low vegetation and smooth terrain and the availability of high-quality in situ hydrometeorological data from the Mesonet network. The study period includes two warm seasons (March to October) from 2009 and 2010. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration/National Severe Storms Laboratory ground radar- based National Mosaic and Quantitative Precipitation Estimation system (NMQ/Q2) is used as high-resolution (5-min/1-km) reference rainfall. The surface wetness conditions (wet, dry, and normal) were determined from surface soil moisture fields simulated by the NASA Catchment Land Surface Model forced with Q2 rainfall fields. A 2-D satellite rainfall error model, SREM2D, is used to provide the ensemble error representation of 2A12 rainfall using two different parameter calibration approaches: conditioning the SREM2D parameters to the surface soil wetness categories versus not. The statistical analysis of model-generated ensembles and associated error metrics show better performance when surface wetness information is used in SREM2D. In terms of quantification, the ensemble rainfall from the conditional SREM2D parameter calibration shows better reference rainfall encapsulation. The conditioning of SREM2D to soil wetness can apply to rainfall rate estimates from other microwave sensors on board low Earth orbiting satellites and is valuable for the forthcoming missions on precipitation (Global Precipitation Measurement) and soil moisture (Soil Moisture Active Passive).

  • Validation of SMAP Soil Moisture analysis product using in-situ measurements over the Little Washita Watershed

    Soil moisture is a key state variable which plays a significant role in many hydrological processes. The Soil Moisture Active Passive (SMAP) mission was launched on 31 January 2015 which can provide global information of soil moisture. Among the released SMAP data sets, the Level 4 Surface and Root Zone Soil Moisture Analysis Product (L4_SM) can not only provide information on surface soil moisture (top 5 cm of the soil column), but also provide estimates of root zone soil moisture (top 1 m of the soil column) which is very important for several key applications targeted by SMAP. However, since this product has been released only for a short time, its accuracy and reliability has not been validated so far. In this study, we evaluated the L4_SM soil moisture analysis product against in-situ soil moisture measurements collected from the Little Washita Watershed network located in southwest Oklahoma in the Great Plains region of the United States. The results show that both the surface and root zone soil moisture estimates in the L4_SM product are in good agreement with the in-situ measurements, and the RMSE is 0.027 m3/m3 and 0.032 m3/m3 for the surface and root zone soil moisture respectively which both have exceeded the RMSE requirement of 0.04 m3/m3 for this product.

  • Impact of surface heterogeneity on surface soil moisture retrievals from passive microwave data

    Water and energy fluxes at the interface between the land surface and atmosphere are strongly depending on the surface soil moisture content which is highly variable in space and time. The sensitivity of active and passive microwave remote sensing data to surface soil moisture content has been investigated in numerous studies. Recent satellite borne mission concepts, as e.g. the SMOS mission, are dedicated to provide global soil moisture information with a temporal frequency of 1-3 days to capture the high temporal dynamics of surface soil moisture. Passive satellite microwave sensors have spatial resolutions in the order of tens of kilometres. The paper investigates the impact of land surface heterogeneity on soil moisture retrievals from L-band passive microwave data at different spatial scales between 1 km and 40 km. The impact of sensor noise and quality of ancillary information is explicitly considered. A synthetic study is conducted where brightness temperature observations are generated using simulated land surface conditions. The soil moisture retrieval uncertainties resulting from the heterogeneity within the image pixels as well as the uncertainties in the a priori knowledge of surface temperature data and due to sensor noise, is investigated.

  • Surface soil moisture estimation using active microwave ERS wind scatterometer and SAR data

    This paper presents an original methodology to retrieve surface (< 5 cm) soil moisture over low vegetated regions using the two active microwave instruments of ERS satellite. The developed algorithm takes advantage of the multi-angular configuration and high temporal resolution of the Wind Scatterometer (WSC) combined with the SAR high spatial resolution. High correlations (R/sup 2/ greater than 0.8) are observed for three studied watersheds in France with an rms error smaller than 4% between real and retrieved moistures.

  • The application of LST/NDVI index for monitoring land surface moisture in semiarid area

    ]Studies on character and variation of surface moisture become more and more important in land surface process and hydrological modeling. Several methods have been proposed to estimate dry/wet conditions of land surface. However, there are some limitations in these methods. We developed an empirical method of detecting surface moisture condition using surface temperature and vegetation index derived from NOAA/AVHRR data. The results show that vegetation index and surface temperature are important parameters to describe characters of dry/wet condition of land surface. It is obvious that the use of remotely sensed data is potentially of great interest in such context. Therefore, to monitor surface moisture is an important subject of remote sensing. Using this method the surface moisture is detected in the Northwestern Loess plateau of China. The distribution characters of the surface moisture is analyzed as well

  • Hydrologic applications for SMAP and SMOS surface soil moisture retrieval products

    Surface soil moisture products generated by recent L-band radiometer missions have significant potential for enhancing hydrologic stream flow prediction. Here, we objectively evaluate this potential using data sets generated by both the ESA SMOS and NASA SMAP satellite missions. Evaluation is based on their ability to improve the representation of both 1) pre-storm antecedent soil moisture conditions and 2) within-storm rainfall accumulation depths. Results demonstrate that SMOS and SMAP surface soil moisture products can significantly improve both key aspects of a hydrologic prediction system.

  • A study on thermal inertia approach for agricultural drought monitoring in Shaanxi Province, China by using NOAA/AVHRR data

    Thermal inert in method is one of the main approaches for drought monitoring by using remotely sensed data. The method is widely used in the China North Plain which is relatively flat. In our study, we tried to apply the approach to the agricultural areas of Shaanxi Province in the Northwest China with terrain and climate varies. The results showed that apparent thermal inertia can be used to monitor the drought occurrence. Considering the effects of terrains, vegetation coverage and soil types, the more homogeneous the land surface is, the better correlation between the apparent thermal inertia mid surface soil moisture is

  • On the Disaggregation of Passive Microwave Soil Moisture Data using a Priori Knowledge of Temporally Persistent Soil Moisture Fields

    Water and energy fluxes at the interface between the land surface and atmosphere are affected by the surface water content of the soil, which is highly variable in space and time. Recent satellite mission concepts, as e.g. the Soil Moisture and Ocean Salinity Mission (SMOS), are dedicated to provide global soil moisture information with a temporal frequency of a few days to capture the high temporal dynamics of surface soil moisture. As passive microwave sensors have a spatial resolution in the order of tens of kilometers, the application of the data in mesoscale flood forecasting or water balance models is hampered due to the different spatial scales. The paper investigates the potential of using prior information on spatially persistent soil moisture fields to disaggregate SMOS scale soil moisture products. The approach is based on a ten-year soil moisture climatology, derived from a state-of-the-art land surface scheme. The developed approach shows a generally good performance for large parts of the test site, where soil moisture can be disaggregated with an accuracy better than the 4 vol.% benchmark of the SMOS mission.

  • Spatial Variability of Surface Soil Moisture in Semi-arid Region of Northern China

    In this study, the spatial pattern and correlation of surface moisture content over the Jinghe River Basin, was investigated by using in-situ measurements and remotely sensed data. First of all, the spatial pattern of the soil moisture content was retrieved from the MODIS imagery based on a statistical relationship between the Temperature Vegetation Dryness Index (TVDI) and in- situ soil moisture measurements over the basin, then the geo-statistic analysis methods and semi-variogram function were applied on the derived soil moisture for investigating the spatial correlations of soil moisture content. It was found that the magnitude of the field measured soil moisture content was correlated with the adjacent pixels especially for the samples from the same land use type. The correlation length, which is increasing with the topographical attribute, can be detected and validated from the statistical characteristics of in-situ soil moisture measurements and remotely sensed data.
