earlier missions (e.g., AMSR-E at 10.7 GHz). The benefit of using satellite soil moisture retrievals in large-scale data assimilation systems has been shown in multiple studies ( Liu et al. 2011 ; Pan et al. 2012 ). However, only a few studies discussed the direct assimilation of satellite-based Tb at larger scales ( Reichle et al. 2001 ; Balsamo et al. 2006 ). One of the reasons is the complexity of representing radiative transfer processes at the global scale, which will be addressed in this paper

canopy. To obtain the fractional area of WSS and standing water for seasonal vegetation–covered areas in temperate zones, we simplified the zero-order radiative transfer model ( Kirdiashev et al. 1979 ; Wigneron et al. 1993 ) to retrieve the polarized effective emissivity difference from PDBT. The soil water saturation has a quasi-linear relationship with its PEED. We found that the fractional area of WSS and standing water can be represented by the soil water saturation, taking the spatial

–atmosphere interface play an important role in controlling the atmospheric heating and ground warming. It is, therefore, vital to be able to simulate the surface heat fluxes transfer accurately for quantifying and predicting the impact of global warming on the ecologically fragile high-altitude regions, such as the SRYR. Models of the surface heat fluxes transfer between the land surface and atmosphere usually employ the bulk formulations based on the Monin–Obukhov similarity theory (MOST; Garratt 1994
