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 ...
Validation of SMAP surface soil moisture products with core validation sites
The NASA Soil Moisture Active Passive (SMAP) mission has utilized a set of core validation sites as the primary methodology in assessing the soil moisture retrieval algorithm performance. Those sites provide well-calibrated ...
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 ...
A Comparison of the Signal from Diverse Optical Sensors for Monitoring Alpine Grassland Dynamics
Grasslands cover up to 40% of the mountain areas globally and 23% of the European Alps and affect numerous key ecological processes. An increasing number of optical sensors offer a great opportunity to monitor and address ...
