Abstract

The Community Microwave Emission Model (CMEM) is the low frequency forward observation operator developed at ECMWF. It is used in this paper to simulate brightness temperatures at local and regional scales over SMOSREX (France) and AMMA (West Africa), respectively. Background errors in simulated brightness temperatures are quantified at different frequencies and incidence angles for these two sites.
