Abstract
Surface Soil Moisture (SSM) affects the soil surface energy balance and thus affects the Land Surface Temperature (LST), and viceversa. Currently, LST and SSM are remotely sensed using TIR sensors and L-band radiometers, respectively. The NASA's Terra/Aqua missions provide full coverage of LST measurements under clear sky conditions using MODIS. The ESA's SMOS mission is the first satellite providing frequent SSM and ocean salinity observations at global scale. In this paper, a sensitivity study...
