AbstractEarth observation satellites play a critical role in providing information for understanding the global water cycle, which dominates the Earth-climate system. However, limitations in observations will restrict our current ability to reduce the uncertainties in the information used to make decisions regarding to water use and management. Under the support of "Strategic Priority Research Program for Space Sciences" of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, a new satellite concept of global Water Cycle Observation Mission (WCOM) is proposed, aiming to provide higher accuracy and consistent measurements of key elements of water cycle from space, including soil moisture, ocean salinity, freeze-thaw, snow water equivalent and etc. The expected more consistent and accurate datasets would be used to refine existing long-time series of satellite measurements, to constrain hydrological model projections and to detect the trends necessary for global change studies. The WCOM is expected to be implemented during the 13th five-year-plan period (2016-2020).
