Title: Impact of drought in France in 2015
Monthly average values of Leaf Area Index (LAI) over France at 8 km x 8 km spatial resolution in July (top) and in August 2015 (bottom): (left) model, (middle) satellite product, (right) analysis.
Model-analysis differences show the impact of assimilating LAI and surface soil moisture on the simulated LAI. The assimilated products are from the Copernicus Global Land Service. The land data assimilation system is developed by CNRM (Meteo-France, CNRS).
