This project objective will be addressed in four separate phases: 1) Phase 1: Apply quality control to existing satellite-based surface soil moisture products. 2) Phase 2: Examine the cross-calibration between existing satellite-based surface soil moisture products. 3) Phase 3: Adapt an Ensemble Kalman filter to integrate the (quality controlled and cross-calibrated) remote sensing products with surface temperature predictions from land surface model. 4) Phase 4: Evaluate the resulting surface temperature product and surface soil moisture retrievals obtained using the surface temperature product.
