Short summary
A soil moisture assimilation experiment is evaluated separately at sub-seasonal, seasonal, and inter-annual timescales. In addition to previously reported improvements in sub-seasonal scale soil moisture, it is show that such an assimilation can also improve the model soil moisture at seasonal and inter-annual timescales, demonstrating the potential for near-surface soil moisture assimilation to improve model representation of important long-term events, such as droughts.
