Paper Abstract

This paper demonstrates a study to simulate brightness temperature (BT) between 1-100GHz on the Tibetan plateau area using a coupled land-canopy-atmosphere model at clear-sky conditions.These simulations were compared with Advanced Microwave Scanning Radiometer-Earth Observing System (AMSR-E) measurements on May 1, 2003. A sensitivity study was also carried out to access the relative contributions of the main parameters (particularly the roughness and vegetation water content). Difference between simulated and measured TB were analyzed, discriminating possible issues either linked to the radiative transfer model or due to the land surface parameters.
