AbstractIntercomparisons of microwave-based soil moisture products from active ASCAT (Advanced Scatterometer) and passive AMSR-E (Advanced Microwave Scanning Radiometer for the Earth Observing System) is conducted based on surface soil moisture (SSM) simulations from the eco-hydrological model, Vegetation Interface Processes (VIP), after it is carefully validated with in situ measurements over the North China Plain. Correlations with VIP SSM simulation are generally satisfactory with average values of 0.71 for ASCAT and 0.47 for AMSR-E during 2007-2009. ASCAT and AMSR-E present unbiased errors of 0.044 and 0.053 m3 m-3 on average, with respect to model simulation. The empirical orthogonal functions (EOF) analysis results illustrate that AMSR-E provides more consistent SSM spatial structure with VIP than ASCAT; while ASCAT is more capable of capturing SSM temporal dynamics. This is supported by the facts that ASCAT has more consistent expansion coefficients corresponding to primary EOF mode with VIP (R = 0.825, p < 0.1). However, comparison based on SSM anomaly demonstrates that AMSR-E and ASCAT have similar skill in capturing SSM short-term variability. Temporal analysis of SSM anomaly time series shows that AMSR-E provides best performance in autumn, while ASCAT provides lower anomaly bias during highly-vegetated summer with vegetation optical depth of 0.61. Moreover, ASCAT retrieval accuracy is less influenced by vegetation cover, as it is in relatively better agreement with VIP simulation in forest than in other land-use types and exhibits smaller interannual fluctuation than AMSR-E. Identification of the error characteristics of these two microwave soil moisture data sets will be helpful for correctly interpreting the data products and also facilitate optimal specification of the error matrix in data assimilation at a regional scale. 2013 Copyright Taylor and Francis Group, LLC.
