IN039: " Quality Assessment of Satellite-Derived Land Surface Variables".
Session description Satellite-derived land surface products are crucial for regional to global climate and ecological monitoring. However, it is still unclear as to how these global products comply with accuracy requirements such as those defined for the GCOS' Essential Climate Variables. This session invites contributions presenting methodological advances and results of inter-comparison of satellite products and validation with in situ observations. The session will provide an update on the quality status of the products including, land cover, LAI, soil moisture, snow, and albedo. The main goal is to foster the discussion with users and in situ network scientists for advancing the quality assessment of satellite-derived land surface products.
