Soil Moisture Profile Index in the roots region retrieved by surface wetness scatterometer assimilation method

Abstract:
Analysed liquid soil moisture profile index for four different soil layers (covering the root zone from the surface to ~ 3 metres) generated by the ECMWF soil moisture assimilation system at 24 hour time steps. The analysed soil moisture fields are based on a modelled first guess, the screen-level temperature and humidity analyses, and the ASCAT-derived surface soil moisture. They are then re-scaled soil wetness index by normalising by the saturated soil moisture value as a function of soil type. The Global product is generated starting from the Global surface soil moisture product (CAF product, SM-OBS-3 when becomes available)
