Two-source energy balance modeling of evapotranspiration in Alpine grasslands
This work aims to assess a diagnostic approach which links evapotranspiration (ET) to land surface temperature (LST) measured by thermal remote sensing in the Alps. We estimated gridded ET, from field (30 m) to regional ...
From Point to Pixel Scale: An Upscaling Approach for In Situ Soil Moisture Measurements
Given the high spatial variability of soil moisture content (SMC), direct comparison and integration of observations from different sources and measurement scales is becoming a major challenge. We have developed a spatial ...
Estimation of soil moisture in mountain areas using SVR technique applied to multiscale active radar images at C band
This paper presents an approach for retrieval of soil moisture content (SMC) from different satellite sensors with a focus on mountain areas. The novelties of the paper are: the extension of an already developed method to ...
Snow model sensitivity analysis to understand spatial and temporal snow dynamics in a high-elevation catchment: Hydrological Processes
In this paper, we addressed a sensitivity analysis of the snow module of the GEOtop2.0 model at point and catchment scale in a small high-elevation catchment in the Eastern Italian Alps (catchment size: 61 km2). Simulated ...
A Model Driven Approach for Snow Wetness Retrieval with Sentinel-l
In this paper, a novel approach for the retrieval of snow wetness is presented for Sentinel-1 (S-1) data. The approach uses the information on snow proprieties provided by the hydroclimatological model AMUNDSEN and confirmed ...
Cosmic Ray Neutron sensing in complex systems
Soil moisture is a key variable in environmental monitoring and modelling: being located at the soil-atmosphere boundary, it is a driving force for water, energy and carbon fluxes. Nevertheless its importance, ...
