  • To provide additional validation data for use in land surface data assimilation. These data systems are important for land surface models, which rely on atmosphere-surface observations.

  • For validation of the Advanced Microwave Scanning Radiometer-2 (AMSR2) soil moisture product and resulting soul moisture and flux estimates.

  • For crop modelling, runoff, flood forecasting, Land Surface Model forcing data (i.e. input of AMSR2 soil moisture into the Joint UK Land Environment Simulator (JULES) model).
