    'Staff publications' is the digital repository of Wageningen University & Research

    'Staff publications' contains references to publications authored by Wageningen University staff from 1976 onward.

    Publications authored by the staff of the Research Institutes are available from 1995 onwards.

    Full text documents are added when available. The database is updated daily and currently holds about 240,000 items, of which 72,000 in open access.

    We have a manual that explains all the features

Abstract The use of airborne and space observations to map surface heat fluxes and soil water content at heterogeneous land surfaces was studied. Algorithms to estimate evaporation fluxes with satellite observations were evaluated against measurements. Spatialcorrelation lengths were studied with estimated maps of latent heat flux. Soil water content was estimated with microwaves; effects of soil mineral composition and solute concentration were studied in the laboratory. The significance of observed spatial variability was evaluated with probability distribution functions of errors of estimated latent heat flux and soil water content. Roughness properties were studied with laser measurements. Spatial fields of heat fluxes were obtained from a meteorologicalmodel.
