Short summary
This study has significant practical implications because soil moisture from ESMs can be used for operational drought monitoring, calibrating/validating satellites and documenting how soil moisture influences the climate system on seasonal to interannual timescales. This article shows the spatial and temporal patterns of biases of simulated soil moisture. This could help better develop the models and provide better predictions of future soil-moisture-related climatic events.
