2003). This example uses actual space-borne near-surface soil moisture observations from a historic satellite record in a data assimilation framework, and highlights the significant benefit of using these techniques. However, quantifying the hydrologic model prediction improvement by assimilating remote sensing data requires targeted field campaigns, and such data are lacking for these historic satellite records. Because of its importance, and our increasing ability to observe relevant hydrologic information remotely, it is expected that the amount of hydrologic remote sensing data will grow exponentially over the next decade.

Houser Remote sensing satellite Logger Near-surface moisture skin temperture etc. 1. Schematic of the hydrologic data assimilation challenge (see Color Plate IV). measurements represent only a snapshot in time. Land surface hydrology process models may be used to predict the temporal and spatial hydrologic system variations, but these predictions are often poor owing to model initialization, parameter and forcing errors, and inadequate model physics and/or resolution. 1 illustrates the hydrologic data assimilation challenge to optimally merge the spatially comprehensive but limited remote sensing observations with the complete but typically poor predictions of a hydrologic model to yield the best possible hydrologic system state estimation, and utilize limited point measurements to calibrate the model(s) and validate the assimilation results.

Model-simulated soil moistures for the state of Illinois were validated with measured soil moisture data from Illinois State Water Survey. The model-simulated streamflows were compared with the USGS measured stream-gauge observations at the basin outlet at Mississippi River at Grafton, IL and the Illinois River at Valley City, IL, which showed a 15% relative bias. Model validations for the hourly surface temperature were performed for a period of 20 years (1980–99) by comparison with TOVS surface temperature.
