Abstract

L-band radiometry is a promising pathway for soil moisture estimation at global scale. An observation system simulation experiment was conducted for LEWIS over the SMOSREX bare soil site in 2006 through coupling the Variable Infiltration Capacity(VIC) land surface model and a Multi-Option L-band Microwave Emission Model(MOLMEM) in this study. Impacts from different dielectric constant models and roughness correction schemes on brightness temperature simulation were analyzed.
