WATER: Dataset of ground-based microwave scatterometer and ground truth observations in the Linze grassland foci experimental area Chinese Version


The dataset of ground-based microwave scatterometer (C-5 and LS-C-5; S-3; LS-S-3) and ground truth observations was obtained in the Linze grassland foci experimental area. Besides, TDR-200 was also used. Observation items included:

(1) soil moisture of the grassland on Jul. 9, 2008. HH, HV, VV and VH polarization combinations were applied.

(2) soil moisture of the maize field on Jul. 10, 2008. VV, HH, VH and HV polarization combinations were applied.

(3) humidity of the grassland at around 11:30am on Jul. 11, 2008. VH, HH, VV and HV polarization combinations were applied.
