. The open water fractional area for a densely vegetated floodplain in South America has been retrieved from the PDBT ( Choudhury 1989 ; Hamilton et al. 1996 ; Sippel et al. 1994 , 1998 ), under the assumption that the PDBT of dry soil and open water is constant in forest regions. This approach is only applicable for year-round green areas in South America, because of the relatively small temporal variability of land surface temperature and large and consistent attenuation by the vegetation

latitude is dominated by estimates from North America, because large portions of Europe and Russia are masked out because of RFI contamination (see Fig. 2 ). The no-data periods (white) correspond to frozen conditions, which are excluded from the analysis ( section 2 ). A distinct residual cold bias in 2010 and 2011 is obvious in the ascending V-polarized Tb ( Fig. 3b ) at approximately 50°N, where SMOS Tb V is persistently warmer than the modeled near-surface soil temperature T s (in nature, Tb
