The volume scattering effects of dry soil media and the surface scattering effects of rough surface are represented and coupled in a radiative transfer model (RTM). The RTM is tested through serving as the observation operator of a Land Data Assimilation System (LDAS). The LDAS results are validated at two stations with different weather and land cover conditions.[VIEW IN PUBLICATIONS PAGE][PDF FILE]
