The Envisat ASAR data were in AP mode and VV/VH polarization combinations, and the overpass time was approximately at 11:17 BJT. Simultaneous with the satellite overpass, numerous ground data were collected, the soil temperature, soil volumetric moisture, the loss tangent, soil conductivity, and the real part and the imaginary part of soil complex permittivity were acquired by the POGO soil sensor, and the mean soil temperature from 0-5cm by the probe thermometer. Those provide reliable ground data for retrieval and validation of the surface temperature and evapotranspiration from remote sensing approaches.
Four files were included, ASAR data, No. 1, 2 and 3 quadrates data.
