Figure 8

Simulated (_m) from the Base-Lv, Base-Wil, ATS-LV, ATS-Wil, and ATS-Lv2.5 experiments against the ELBARA-III (_o) at Maqu site. (a, b) and , respectively, for the late-monsoon period (from 08/08/2016 to 30/09/2016). refers to the Pearson correlation coefficient, and RMSE is the root mean square error and calculated by (where is the number of observations). Base-Lv and Base-Wil refer to experiments using AIEM+TVG in combination with Wilheit’s and Lv’s models separately. ATS-Lv and ATS-Wil represent experiments using ATS+AIEM+TVG in combination with Wilheit’s and Lv’s models separately. ATS-Lv2.5 denotes experiment using ATS+AIEM+TVG in combination with Lv’s model and soil moisture at 2.5 cm for calculating the dielectric constant of bulk soil.
