Summary

Spatial and temporal variability in landscape freeze- thaw (FT) status at higher latitudes and elevations significantly impacts land surface water mobility and surface energy partitioning, with major consequences for regional climate, hydrological, ecological, and biogeochemical processes. With the development of new-generation spaceborne remote sensing instruments, future L-band missions, including the NASA Soil Moisture Active and Passive mission, will provide new operational retrievals of landscape FT state dynamics at moderate (~3 km) spatial resolution. We applied theoretical simulations of L-band radar backscatter using first-order radiative transfer models with two and three-layer modeling schemes to develop a modified seasonal [...]
