Project: Assessing the uncertainty in hydrological modelresults caused by uncertainty in assimilated remotely sensed soil moisture data.

abstract
Recent progress in soil moisture assimilation has lead to the conclusion that a combination of remote sensing and hydrological modeling can reduce the uncertainty in regional soil moisture estimates. This research will examine how uncertainty in assimilated remotely sensed soil moisture will result in uncertainty in hydrological model results, and what the accuracy requirements of remotely soil moisture are in order to improve hydrological model results.
