This proposal is for an “International Team” to bring together various ongoing efforts in hydrological cycle studies (data assimilation theory and application, NWP, models, observations) to spend 3 1-week periods at ISSI to discuss the state-of-the-art and bring together leading scientists, with focus on the upcoming ESA Earth Explorer mission SMOS (Soil Moisture and Ocean Salinity), scheduled for launch in 2009. An expected output is, in the first instance, enhanced collaboration and, ultimately, peer-reviewed papers.
