An approach is described for retrieving surface soil moisture and freeze/thaw state using 3-km resolution L-band radar data of the planned Soil Moisture Active and Passive (SMAP) mission. SMAP radar backscatter coefficients are simulated using radar scattering models and land surface hydrology model output generated over the contiguous United States (CONUS). A Monte-Carlo simulation is performed to assess the error budget of the soil moisture retrievals in the presence of radar measurementdoi:10.1109/radar.2010.5494523 fatcat:e6ffw6fxbjbidd7txszq5wcap4
