Title(s):Main Title: Synergies of passive and active microwave sensors for soil moisture retrieval
Description(s):Abstract: Soil moisture active and passive (SMAP) mission is scheduled to launch in 2014-2015 and the first long term space borne active and passive microwave observation at L-band will be available soon. To validate the SMAP observations and processing approaches many field campaigns are being planned. The Rur catchment located in western Germany comprises a distinct variety of topographic and land cover characteristics with intensive monitoring instrumentation and therefore represents an excellent validation site for the soil moisture product of the SMAP mission. In 2008 a campaign was conducted by flying simultaneously with the passive PLMR and the active E-SAR microwave sensor. The successors PLMR2 and F-SAR will fly over the Rur catchment in May 2011. A further campaign is planned for 2012 by using a single joint platform for the active and the passive system. The radar and radiometer measurements can be effectively combined to derive soil moisture maps with the high accuracy of radiometer retrievals and resolution intermediate between the radar and radiometer. In this study we investigate the performance of active and passive microwave data fusion methods and analyse the potential for method enhancements
