Evaporation from a bare soil evaluated using a soil water transfer model and remotely sensed surface soil moisture data



Evaporation from a bare soil evaluated using a soil water transfer model and remotely sensed surface soil moisture data



Water Resources Research 20(2): 311-316



Daily surface soil moisture data, obtained with a C band scatterometer on a bare soil, provide the upper boundary condition for a numerical soil water transfer model. The model uses an implicit finite difference scheme to solve the nonlinear Richards equation. The soil is represented by two layers differing in hydraulic conductivity. Following calibration by comparison of calculated and measured soil moisture profiles, the model provides estimates of the water budget and the boundary fluxes.
