Abstract

A coupled water and energy balance model operating within a topographic framework was used to predict surface soil moisture fields for the Little Washita watershed for an eight-day period in June, 1992 which covered a wide range of soil moisture conditions. The model was first driven by meteorological forcing data, and the model-generated soil moisture fields are compared in space and time to those produced for the watershed by the airborne passive microwave ESTAR sensor for the same time period. In a second analysis, the model was initialized by the remote sensing data, and subsequent model predictions of soil moisture are compared to measured values.
