Abstract:

Surrface soil moisture is one of the most important parameters of study models for floods, hydrology, climate, agro-meteorological forecasts. This paper, we evaluate a method [12] for determining surface soil moisture over West Africa based on API model (Antecedent Precipitation Index) and C-MEB model (C-band Microwave Emission of the Biosphere) from a satellite-based rainfall product PERSIANN. A systematic analysis of errors was carried out at the three sites (Wankama, Agoufou, Nalohou) using in-situ soil moisture.
