as a simple linear rescaling of soil moisture based on soil model parameters like porosity, wilting point, and field capacity. It should be noted that under the definitions proposed here, some usages of the terms—for example, in the name of the Soil Moisture Ocean Salinity (SMOS) satellite mission—are misnomers. However, we will stick to those definitions in this paper except where used disparately by others in their studies, projects, or measuring missions. Some measurements of soil wetness are

through the assimilation of soil moisture observations or related variables (such as microwave brightness temperature; Crow et al. 2006 ; Parajka et al. 2006 ; de Wit and van Diepen 2007 ; Reichle et al. 2007 ; Scipal et al. 2008 ; Drusch et al. 2009 ; Li et al. 2010 ; to name a few). The recently launched Soil Moisture and Ocean Salinity (SMOS) mission ( Kerr et al. 2010 ) and the planned Soil Moisture Active-Passive (SMAP) mission ( Entekhabi et al. 2010a ) are designed to provide soil
