AbstractThe main goal of ESA’s (European Space Agency) SMOS (Soil Moisture and Ocean Salinity) mission is to deliver global fields of surface soil moisture (SM) and sea surface salinity, with enough resolution to be used in numerical weather prediction and global climate models, usin g L-band (1.4 GHz) radiometry. Within the context of the preparation for this mission over land, the Valencia Anchor Station (VAS) experimental site, in Spain, was chosen as a preferential test sites in Europe for SMOS Cal/Val activities. Ground and meteorological measurements over the area are used as input to a Soil-Vegetation-Atmosphere-Transfer (SVAT) model, SURFEX (SURFace EXternalisé) - module ISBA (Interactions between Soil-Biosphere-Atmosphere) to simulate surface SM. Calibration as well as validation of the ISBA model was made by using in situ SM measurements.
