With the support of three soil moisture and temperature networks in the Tibetan Plateau, a microwave algorithm with AMSR-E data is developed for the detection of soil surface freeze/thaw state. The classification accuracy of this algorithm is more than 90% for the semi-humid and semi-arid regions, and misclassifications mainly occur at the transition period between unfrozen and frozen seasons.[VIEW IN PUBLICATIONS PAGE][PDF FILE]
