New publication about the fusion of active and passive microwave observations

Printer-friendly version

A new scientific publication in the ISPRS Annals discusses on a high-level possible approaches for fusing the individual active and passive satellite data.

It is argued that the best possible approach for the fusion of the different satellite data sets is to merge Level 2 soil moisture data derived from the individual satellite data records. This approach has already been demonstrated within the WACMOS project funded by European Space Agency (ESA) and will be further improved within the Climate Change Initiative (CCI) programme of ESA.
